1972 Southcoast 22 no engine $1800 or SANTANA 21 $1500

The first one has an engine. The price seems pretty low. Maybe there is something wrong with it?

Both have shallow draft which is good for me in the Illinois river. An extra foot might be worth another $120 to me. Reading on the Internet I found people saying that the Santana "is a fast boat". Is that much of a concern? The Santana Craigslist posting doesn't have any pictures of the inside of the boat.

I can get a trolling motor and a battery and not have to mess with an engine at all, so having an engine is not a big deal. I really don't want to have to use the engine for an extended period and have to pay for gas ever.

1972 Southcoast 22 foot length. With trailer. No motor.

The boat comes with one main and 2 jib sails in good condition.

The trailer has new tires.
[Southceast 22 email to me]
The foam is there and there is new fabric
which needs installed. No anchor. Has a depth finder , one main and two
jib's that are in good condition. The price is negotiable. I have a boat
title but the man I bought it from did not have a title for the trailer
nor do I.
Thanks for reading.

I don't think that I would go engineless and a trolling motor is probably not up to the task for this size of boat. Without pictures of either boat it is hard to make any sort of judgment call. From personal experience I can tell you the Santanna is a nice boat. Don't worry about it being a "fast boat". That just means that it is designed more for racing vrs cruising. Unless you need the cruising accommodations.

Someone else will have to chime in on the build quality of the Southcoast.
