I am able to spend more but I am also still tring to get a steal.
I would like to stay under 30 because I want to leave it in the well. The well is also not a must.

You need a wave crusher on Lake Michigan.

He's not on Lake MI, but Lake St Clair.

However, your boat would be an awesome choice I think.

Wink You won't get something for nothing but you just might get something for a little som

That 29 Baja seems like a good buy is going to be had, but if you notice a $32K minimum bid is asked and I don't think you are going to buy that boat for less than $40-45K.
Keep dream'in and trying though in this market who knows, the worst thing they can say is NO! good Luck!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

Boatingonabudget:
You might want to look at this boat on Ebay, #290296245185 a 1995 Sonic 35', the bid closes in another day, but with a little work here a new trailer and loose the arch, someone is going to geta nice toy here for a very resonable price I think!
Best Regards,

something like this?
Is there something better?

A deal that seams to good to be true usually is. Spend the $$$ up front on a nice clean boat or spend it later fixing stuff on the great deal.

The engine HP is listed as 385hp. They are not. They are 310hp. The cabin carpet is all stained which shows it has had standing water in it.

There are plenty of good boats out there for sale at very reasonable prices.

You need to decide if you want a single or twins as well.

I know the original owner of the boat, he's a very good friend. He bought it new in 96 and babied it. Very nice riding boat, cuts through waves like a knife and would run mid to high 60's. I miss that boat around here!
