Re: Champagne taste on a beer budget

Let me add my agreement to what has been written here. I just bought a nice older Cat 22 on a trailer for a song. My family and I have had an absolute blast on it this summer and plans are already taking shape for big fun next year. I'm ecstatic with this purchase and my buddy who has a big expensive diesel inboard Hunter 32 says he wishes he did the same as me.

Not saying get a Cat 22 - just saying that a cheaper boat can be just as much (or more) fun. I actually almost walked away from this particular boat because it was filthy. I went back and looked again. Underneath the dirt was a nice boat. An hour with a power washer was like a miracle. So dirt can be a buyers friend.
