btw, do you need a cabin?
Sitdown or Standup configuration?
Anything you definitely DONT want on your boat?

This Cig on ebay is very well known on this site, and there is a thread going on about it in the Cig forum.

There was a 8m carrera for sale up in the NE in May.
Looks very cool. I can get you the owners number. Here's a pic, and i have more i can email.

those all look like nice options storm, but i just can't jusity spending that kind of money on a 25 0r 30 yr old hull...as of right now i'm leaning towards the checkmate, but we'll see what happens...i want drop out bolsters and a decent cabin

if anyone knows of anything for sale in my budget please post it!

I had a 22ft Checkmate and loved it. Fast, but didn't like Lake Michigan all that much. I don't think you will have that problem in a 28, also twins are better than singles.
