My folks live in the OBX and it would be awesome to run in the sounds and maybe ocean on really calm days.

Budget will be fairly limited to around 10k for a used boat. Looking specifically at outboards for performance/dollar ratio and ecomony.

I really like the Velocity 22, Superboat 21, Challenger 21 boats, however is there anything else I should be looking at?

Thanks !

Go to this linkhttp://www.revolution performance boats.com.au
In the pictures mine is the black boat.
Probably out of your price range but IMO by far the best rough water 21' boat ever built.
I have other images, just cant get them up.

Donzi 22 ZX or 22 Classic. Both come with big blocks and range in price from 12,000 to 70,000. Ive even seen an ad where a guy spent 190K on his Ilmore 710 powered 22 Classic Shelby edition.
