Just a few questions and opinions on a boat purchase I am considering. I have the opportunity to buy a 21ft 2001 Seafox center console for $11,500 O.B.O with 115 HP envinrude with depth finder, radio, bimini top, etc here in Virginia or 2 choices in Texas: (1) 97 Monark 22ft Pontoon with force motor for $8000 O.B.O or a 94 18ft Parti-Kraft Pontoon with 2000/2001 4 stroke 70HP evinrude, seats 10 comfortably with plenty of extra room. This boat is equipped with a fish finder, a depth finder, removable face CD player, tanning deck w/ storage, solar powered battery charger, and pre-wired battery charger for when not in use. comes with trailer & transom saver. Now I primarily Catfish every weekend and occassionally do some bass fishing but I have friends with boats for that. This is my first boat and my goal is to have a boat that is comfortable for long hours of fishing, plenty of room, reliable and safe(meaning I can take it on big rivers and large resevoirs and it be able to handle the water with no worries or minimal in very choppy waters, white caps, etc) I am not after speed as I hate fast boats with their wake and the disrespect towards bank fisherman as well as fisherman anchored down trying to enjoy themselves. I just want reliability, safety and comfort mostly. Please help me out guys, I'd hate to buy the wrong boat and regret it, although at this point being a bank fisherman any boat would be great.
