I am letting this get to me way too much. \:D

Just weighing all my options and seeing what I might do.
Option 1 is spend about $300.00 and get my 1985 35 hp mercury outboard fixed and rock on.

Option 2 is spend about $4,000.00 and put a new 30 hp 4 stroke outboard on it.

Option 3 is spend way too much and buy a different boat. \:D

I really like this one:
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores...eAheadSearchCmd

Tracker Super Guide V-16 SC.
I looked at the tiller handle model and it is higher than the console one????

This is basically the same boat I have now only alot newer and with a console.

After using it I am pretty sure I prefer the V bottom style boats.

Bass Tracker, Triton, G3.... dunno what all the other ones offer?

Maybe I can find a used one but I hate spending that kind of money on something I ain't sure of what I am getting, plus most used ones I have found are within $1,000 of the price of a new one.

Maybe someone on here has a good one for sale.... cheap. \:D

I can tell you from experience a used boat will almost always find a way for you to spend money on it. My next boat will be a brand new one with a full warranty.

Unless you know the previous owner and how a boat was taken care of, new with warranty is the way to go!!!

Fix your motor lol. But if you do buy a boat buy it in the winter you get a better price.

personally I would try to buy a new one or close to new as possible I think in the long run it will save you money. but that just me. also got to think about getting money back out of your boat when you decide to sell it. put to much into it you'll never get it back out or even close lots of factors. my ne worth just getting a new motor. though if the over all boat is in good shape.

Nothing wrong with a used boat, just know what to look for or have a knowing person help you.

You are more than welcome to fish out of my G3 and see if you like it.
