28 pantera would fit the bill nicely, and be well in your price range for a used one, 2 of them in the classifieds under $50K

I would not be asking if I could buy anything. I know it will probably be a used boat. So something in the $ 75,000 range.

Sounds like a 28isg with a 24* deadrise would fit the bill.

Always like Panters as my brother had a 24'er with a 454 in it.

Deadrise

Types of waters and challenges

Just an overview of what to expect/plan for and invest in for boating conditions in the Punta Gorda area. Might head for the Gulf now and then.

I would not be asking if I could buy anything. I know it will probably be a used boat. So something in the $ 75,000 range.

I was "toying" with the idea of a Kawasaki Jet Boat 20* deadrise Twin 25 and' 8'6" beam....looks fun but would I have to be limited to "channels"? Bad idea?

Thanks for your help!
I would not hesitate to look at these two 28 Panteras, both under $50k;

Since you've owned a 23 and 24, a 28 wouldn't be too big a jump. Plus you can run it anywhere, lake or ocean.

I think I am going to check that out and the Panteras too.

Just curious about if the Port Charlotte harbor is a no wake zone or speed limit or can you let it rip?
