Re: Need a boat to cruise the coast of Maine
There is a 29.9 down where i live in FL for sale for $13k. It's not in absolutely perfect shape, but with some elbow grease and scrubbing everything should come out fine. I seriously considered her before we bought our Cape Dory. I believe she has a new Beta diesel, too. I can refer you to a surveyor that did a good job for us looking at a boat from a distance, if you like.
If you are a good negotiator, you might could get her for $10k and have $10k for upgrades/improvements/delivery.
If you PM me, I'll send you the link when I get home.
