I have no interest in a boat too small to have a cabin and no use for a boat that can't be trailered and ramp launched, unfortunately that's a $3000 boat minimum (if its old and and not much more than functional) around here without finding some crazy good deal.

I really just need to not be so picky about the technical details, its not in my price range.
Where area are you in?
