last i was thinking maybe hold out for a performance boat in the mid 35k range?

thanks for all your help
I'm assuming you're talking about Oneida Lake..... Here's just a few from the Syracuse Craigslist-

Easy way to weed through most of the listings on craigslist is to search a motor size in the boat section (454 496 502 525 ect.) Good luck and hope to see ya out there!
