Default Done with cars, Boat Suggestions.

I am done with cars for a little while now, probably over a year. Selling my truck, parting out the Bimmer, getting a new job. I plan to have about 3500$. Would like to buy a boat, I wont get in as much trouble, girls are already mostly naked, etc. I have a lot of time to work on this, just not a lot of money. Does anyone have any suggestions? 22 feet or less is what the tow vehicle is going to handle. Vee, Cat, etc, would like at least a 4 seater.

Thanks,
Tommy

What is your situation with the Baja? Is it kinda dads boat and you want your own, or are you just tired of it and wanting something different?

I don't know Tommy with only 3500 you might just want to find a guy with a cool boat and buy him gas.

You might be able to pick up a older Wellcraft or Stingray for cheap those were my first two brands.

I bought this when i was 19. 1984 Scarab I 21ft 350/Alpha. I payed 7k with a trailer. I have seen them out there near your price range. Also there is a Chappareal Villain 21 also that is nearly the same boat.

yeah i'd tend to think that with $3500 to spend your not gonna be able to pickup a boat that will run faster than our dad's

maybe buy an old bayliner with a 4 banger and drop a 454 in it or someting.....
