Go read the Boat Review and Purchase Forum. You will have a better idea about what you need to do.

1500 would be a better deal

Looks good in the Pics but how bout up close. I don't think 4500 is too much for a well cared for boat. The trailer looks good (in the pics as well). As long as there are no "up close" deficits and you are willing to part with it. Prudence would call call for a survey. Good Luck!

Have you checked on for boats in your price range...If you are leaving out of NY..Michigan is a ways away for making a purchase in your price range unless it is a smoking deal.... NY under 8k showed 48 boats in your price range...even a 30ft or two...Best of Luck...When are you two planning to leave? I might just be on a similar trip down south myself this fall...

Fair Winds....
