If it is the boat, condition, and price I want I'd travel across the country to get it. I'm looking at mostly east coast boats and I live in AZ.

Drove 26 hrs one way to get mine. If it's what you want , you just have to go and get it.

I flew to Ok to look at a boat and then drove back and picked it up. i have friends that have gone to florida and got boats. if you want an offshore boat then you need to check with Phil at Lipship it will be worth your while.

As far as it takes to get whatever you want and stay within your budget. I have been to Philly twice for the last two boats, and drove it back last time. Would have been the same price to flatbed it back, but it was an adventure.

It is a big expense to buy a boat. No reason not to make it fun.

Drop me a line. The new Active Thunders are shearly amazing. I can answer questions, and put you on the path to owning one. What size boat are you looking for? What is your price threshold? Do you want new or pre-owned?

Shoot me a PM and I will respond with my phone number.

The price of going the distance to find what you really want is nothing compared to the price of compromising on a boat just because it is close. Besides road trips to look at boats are some of the most memorable experiences I've had. Some good, some bad Good Luck.
