Tyson, sit down and make a list of things you want in a boat; organize info into features you "must have" and things that are neotiables to you. Shop the seller as much as the actual boat. You can learn a lot about a boat by learning and observing the person(s) selling it. Character is king.

I think this would be alot better choice than the Baja and seems to be priced well and has a windshield.

At 301 Hours the boat could be in need of a top end rebuild. Your post is neither helpful nor informed.

fctyson like a poster before said there was an AT that recently sold for simliar money. I guess it depends on how much that guy is willing to budge.

This seems like it would be comparable to the baja as far as money and hrs go. But alot better built boat in my opinion it and the formula I posted above are a step above the baja.

Is the price on the Baja a firm price? If not, kinda hard to suggest he could do better if that boat could be had for less. Appears he is interested in it for what ever reason. Tons of people are happy with their Bajas.

I dont think there Is anything wrong with Bajas. But I think If you could buy a similar vintage or newer Formula or or Fountain for the same price you wouldnt be doing to bad. Just a better looking and bult boat in my opinion.

You can get ALOT more boat for that money. Here's a two with a quick search.

Is your link to some antiques a better recommendation? Lets face it the kid has probably read just about every post on here. I'm sure he studies whats for sale with what power and prices. The guy was asking opinions, everyone has one. You like old v hulls, I like cats, and the next guy might like sail boats. It is what it is, cut the kid some slack. I enjoy reading some of his post. Probably the best recommendation for that guy is...save your money and just ride with a friend its a lot cheaper! But what do I know?
