Miss that boat don't ya?
Imho, a 30 footer is plenty big enough, if it's too rough for a 30 footer, it's too rough for a 38, and the 38 is harder to maneuver on land or on the sea.

Buck
with my track record mine will probably be for sale before long

all kidding aside, there arent to many boats that rides like a gun, are easy to maneuver around the docks, are fairly easy to tow, and hold resale value like a Bullet.

Thats what I thought till I sold my 30 and went to a 42. The ride and the general feel are FAR superior, and I have never not been abel to get a dock anywhere. It is a little harder to move around on a trailer, but not so much to be inconvenient. NOW, that being said lets talk about gas.....

Its in a weird price range also to expensive for most entry level boaters and to old for someone who could spend 150 200 gs on a boat

looks like a nice worthy ride to me- as soon as I saw it I fugured Buck would be all over it.

The banks/ finance guys I've spoken with don't seem to care about age as long as it's a worthy boat that appraises- don't see an issue here
