    Got my first "Real" boat...

    Has the boat been covered or stored inside? Doesn't look like it but it is in good shape. I think all the important stuff has been covered. Let us know when you go out for sea trials.

    Cruiser or Walkaround

    May I suggest a Hydrasport. I have a 06 2500vx express. I can walk around to the bow with no problem. Weight maxed w/trailer is 8000lb. I tow w/ a Duramax 2500hd.Plenty of truck for this rig. Very economical w/twin f150s. 23deg deadrise for rough seas and smooth ride. cabin can sleep 2. 12v/120v refrig. micro small stove. fresh water. If this sounds like something you are interested in, check out the web site. As far as hot in the summer, I have 2 12v fans that i run for my guests, if they get hot.

    Your ideal fishing boat inshore/offshore capable

    First question: What is your budget? Second question: What is your answer to the first? Seriously, that is too broad a question to get anywhere near a good answer. I went to boat shows for many years, looking at boats that i realy liked but could not aford. Once I figured out how much i could spend it narrowed my choices down tremendously. Once you know how much you can afford, double that figure. Going from a 18' Hydra sport to an offshore fishing machine is a big jump in price,fuel, maintainence, etc. After you have answered the first question, you can tell us if you are looking used or new. Help us out by giving us more details.
