Polwart. I don't understand your first answer. The second one is probably understandable and the third one. Well a ten year old boat will probably be okay but the engine is probably going to be a porker.
Just visit boats and outboards. Its most depressing trying to work your way through the thousands of adverts trying to find a genuine boat.
Nos4r2 probably has the right answer. If its a good boat and its priced fairly its probably going to go quick.
Don't you find it suprising how many people come on here asking for advice after looking at second hand boats and get told to buy the boat and change the engine for a better one at a later date. Thats probably when you find old boats with good engines. It seems like a vicious circle.
What I was originally trying to say was that it is very hard to find a decent boat (Whole package) second hand. There seems an awful lot of dross out their. I suppose as I've found out myself over the years buying a boat can be a very sharp and expensive learning curve. Oh and very dangerous if you get stuck out at sea.
