hi.
A better educated person is harder to make a fool out of.
Study and learn all you can about the particular boat, boat construction, engines, drives and trailers. Then, when you're comfortable, find a respected surveyor, not just a guy who will get you a loan, to confirm your findings.

I have looked at some repo sites, but it didn't go to far because they required a subscription. I will be sure to look for more. Is there a certain thing to search for as keywords other than repo I am in Northern IL so anything around this area would be great.

Chris, you did a nice job on the Pantera, but it is not exactly what I am looking for, but thank you.
If you are an investigator....... investigate.Go deep, thats all I can say. History will tell all.

Thanks Chuck, I appreciate it. I will give them a call.

I will definitely get a survey done. I think it is required most times now with the loan application.

The boat I am looking for is a 2000-2004 25ft Baja Outlaw with a 496 MAG or HO. It appears to be a good entry boat in my price range. I looked at a 1999 26 Donzi zx but it was pretty beat up.

I know of a Factory ordered 02 23 Baja with a single 496, fresh water use, with bolsters and eagle dual axle trailer. Stored indoors year round, rack stored during the summer. Don't believe the boat has ever sat in water for extended periods of time. For sale by owner, not a dealer. Boat shows like new. Owner is very meticulous, fluids changed on schedule, comes with everything, docklines, fenders, anchor w/150 line,etc. Great turnkey/starter boat. No I am not a salesmen either, just trying to help a guy out, looking to move up in size.

Sometimes buying directly from the owner can be to your advantage, rather then dealing with a dealer. They're not just trying to move inventory.

If the price is right I would consider a 23ft. Where is the boat located?

how about a 26 mid cabin with new everything? with ONE hour. also showing it's big brothers. Great American Concepts. This is a very rare boat. It went on to become the Laveycraft nuera. if you like midcabin layout this boat is perfect.
