Default Another Newb...(swabby?)

Hey OSO.

Just moved to Tampa area and thinking of getting a boat to play in. 1st timer really, so I'll be lurking these forums!

Any recommendations for a first boat? 30k Maximum I would guess.

Anyone other TPA members?

I thought Size doesn't matter??

Well, i figured I'd rather not have to lug it to and from a launch. I guess it all depends. Day boat as in, no sleeping cabin? Either or. As of right now, i honestly have no main preferences. That's why i'm here though. See what's out there.

Thanks guys for the welcome and help such far.

welcome to the circus.

Is this you're first boat?
There's some nice thing's on the market right now that could be had for the money you're talking in the 25' range if you don't mind it being a little older. (I actually prefer the styling of some of the older boats).
Good luck in your search.
