I figure its Sunday, this is the lounge, and I see so many people come to BHW for the weirdest advice so how about I try and get your opinion on something. I recently moved into a community that has a marina so I have been thinking of buying a boat. I am not a boat person so I really don't know what I should or should not be looking at. I have went to a couple of dealerships just to look and I have been doing some online searching. I am looking to keep my cost under around $8500 so Iv'e been checking out older model boats. 20+ years old. Any of you guys into boats? Any suggestions? Is it expensive repairing and older boat? Do boats break down alot? Here are some of my requirements... -Under $10K - Has a cabin - Can go pretty fast - Noob friendly -Not bad on the eyes 2 boats that have been standing out are the Rinker Fiesta and the Bayliner 2452 @BassTrackerBoats I would love your insight on this.
