Hey guys.  Hopefully the deal goes down smoothly tomorrow so, of course, I'll be on the prowl for the next Murphy's Law.  I'm looking for a boat with the following characteristics:

- reasonable draft (8-10 inches or less)
- relatively new and in great condition (well maintained, etc.)
- at least 50 ponies in the back
- 16-17 foot range
- preferably center or side console
- reasonably dry ride
- V entry

Price range is $6,500ish.  Let me know if you all have/find anything :)

Remember it's bad luck to copy a boat name, you gotta add a 2 after it or something ;)

Re: On The Lookout

Still lookin'! I've done my fair share of driving to look at different boats...nearly every time driving home disappointed.

Looking for HP range from 60-90 (115 max)...preferably a Yamaha.

Mainly looking for Hewes lapstrake boats, Action Crafts, etc.

The boat and trailer will have to fit in a 22.5' garage.

Thanks for your help so far, guys!
