    We got approved to buy a house on Friday. Have to put $1000 down so the boat is out for another year. House is more important. Boy that was a tough pill to swallow but its better for the family. Thanks for all the advise everyone gave me in my search. I will keep everything in mind when I start my search again.

    Glen, Congrats on the house!!!

    Don't worry about not getting a boat. Just make friends with neighbors in the area that have boats. Then save the money for next year, and go out and get ya one ya like.

    i was going to order me a new boat new outboard and new trailer, but things change, but i did luck out found a 16x42 deep and wide alumacraft with trailer for 200 bucks, just been sitting under a tree down the street from me for a couple of years, just recently picked up a old 15hp seaking outboard, had the shop go completely thru it, and it runs great now, all in all i have about 500 bucks invested in it, and very happy with it, and saved a couple of grand to boot
