advice for buying boat with a 3k budget in juneau
So far i have not had much luck with finding skiffs around Juneau that run reliably in this range. Maybe im being silly, but for 3000 I would think i would be able to do so.
I was wondering if you old salts had some recommendations for a guy on a budget to look for when purchasing a boat. I drive a 78 foot catamaran for work, but there are pretty big differences between that and smaller crafts. I am looking for something inexpensive but forgiving in case of user error or snotty weather. Thank you all for your time.
You'll generally find better prices and buys in the fall. 3K won't buy a whole lot of boat or engine(s) - the first thing you want to be buying is a safe boat that you can rely on to get you home, comfort is econdary. Start saving and keep a weather eye out for somebody letting go of an old Bayrunner or Western skiff.
