Now you may have started something. For every boat that is loved there is someone that hates it. Boat 101!
I would suggest that you do some searching on this site and you will find every and all questions delved into. Many opinions, some by people that actually have a clue. Some not! If nothing else, you will learn some things. If this thread takes off it will just end up being a regurgetation of old threads that would probably benefit you more.
What boat should you buy for $30-35,000. Probably a $25,000 boat with $10K to spend fixing it up. Good Luck.
