20K to spend on a 17 foot boat, what boat do you get? my buddy is looking at a Kenner 180VX . Its the fishing boat, not the one with a liner. he is going to buy a tunnel hull and equip it with a jackplate for the 90 horse merc optimax. he plans to buy before march 31st cause the optimax comes with a 5 year warranty vrs the standard 3 year. thoughts? any other boats he should be looking at? the kenner hull has a lifetime warranty on the hull (stringers and transome) he wants a multi purpose boat that can do inshore and light offshore. discuss- thoughts are much appreciated.
