I have finally gotten to a place in my life where I can afford to buy my first boat. Somethings I want to consider is that I will be using it mostly for fresh water cating. I would prefer to buy it brand new to avoid any unseen problems that may pop up with a used one. It would be me and 1 or 2 buddies out at a time. But I will more then likely take it to the salt water bays atleast 4-5 times a year. I have looked at two different boats and just can't make up my mind. Here is the first one I am looking at.... http://www.nauticstarboats.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=79 I figure for the price it was not bad. Now here is the second boat I was looking to buy..... http://www.trackerboats.com/boat/?boat=3109 I like the price on this one as well, but Im not sure it would do well in the salt water as it is smaller then the first. What are the pro's and the con's of each of these boats? Why would you pick one over the other? Any real life experinces with these boats I would like to hear about them. Including maintance costs and performance out on the water. Choices, Choices, Choices.
