I have a limited budget and have been looking at early model boats. I kind of have my heart set on a 1995ish nautique super sport V drive. Problem is that it seems to be rather scarce in my corner of the world and budget. I missed a nice one on CL by two days
The budget is 10K +/- a scosh.
I run in salt and will require a well built boat and an open bow. I have looked at the late 80's Malibu sunsetters but they all have rotten stringers and underwhelming build quality.
I am not asking for actual listings. This is a request for ideas of boats that perhaps I am overlooking.
