Since you are on the West Coast I would save my pennies and wait for a nice 733 0r 754 to come up. it might take 4-8 months but you will get more boat for your money if you get one at auction. some of those go for 20-30k and are close to turn key!

There was an auction here recently with 5-6 for sale. One had twin Honda 135s, which went for around 25. The rest were diesel, which went for around 6-7 each. I believe Todd may have bought all those.

I am crossing my fingers that Jason will win the lotto soon, and sell me his boat.

I may have a 4 stroke Yamaha 250 lined up for around 10 installed, if I could find something with a blown outboard, that would work.

If I had a choice, I would rather go with an outboard, but I may be open to diesel.

Thanks for your input and advice.

don't forget GSAauctions.gov there is a nice SafeBoat on there now, you could just skip to the end and bypass the 7m boat.

Jason,

I do watch that site and have seen that boat. Those boats come up fairly regularly.
I'm pretty sure a CC 7M is what I'm going for.

I have a few right now that I know of that should be up for sale soon.

Thanks.

Patience is your only friend when buying a boat, the right deal will come, may take 4-8 months but save up and be ready to jump when you find it!
