Default Frustrated Looking for a New Boat

I sold my 26 American Offshore and now I'm a frustrated boat shopper. I forgot how much I hate boat shopping until now. I know that my budget for what i can and want to afford is slowing the process but there is nothing out there forsale. If anyone can help or has any leads please send them. I am looking for a 26 Hustler, 31 Sonic, 32 Active Thunder or 28 Active thunder. I realize it is a short list but those are what I'm looking for.

Don't get frustated, it took me over a year to find my boat. I was only looking at Checkmates with the limit of spending $25,000. I just bought mine yesterday. A 97 Checkmate 242 convincor with a 502 carb. I paid $24,000 which is low book value. Use the internet, the photo mags, and of course OSO.

I bought my Sonic for under 60k but it took a while to find! Too Olds was a deal! I've stuck a bunch of money in mine since 6k in motors, about 2k in new paint another 1k in new interior, I'm real close to where I want to be but want new gauges yet and Radar and fresh paint for the trailer. Good luck!

I was told they have a deal pending on that 1996 32 AT over a month ago. So my shopping continues

It seemed like a deal for low 60's
