    I'll send you and EMAIL asking about THIS boat!

    I don't know what I want, but I'll know it when I see it!

The gamut of used out there is pretty overwhelming. Like to get any and all input on suggestions. Background on me, approaching retirement age, never owned other than canoes and kayaks, been on charter boats and rentals, so been exposed, but don't even consider myself an amatauer. Like to be around the $10k level, unless you all tell me that going new is the way to go. Like to hear anything, good and bad, don't pull any punches, the good, the bad and the ugly!!! TIA
    FYI....there is a 19 ft Carolina Skiff w/ 90 yammie & trolling motor on CL for about $12K located near Corson's inlet.

    Have the CS 17 JVX (narrow beam) with 60 HP Merc 4 stroke. Fish, bar hop and take kids tubing. Boat is bulletproof except ....... no scuppers all water pumps from bilge. If slipping make sure some one is around to watch after it. I have seen it sitting low on camera and had to run over and check why it was not pumping. Don't even feel it when trailering (trailer weighs more the boat)
    Good luck.
