Drooling over idea of boat in spring... But, What kind???

I keep dreaming and talking of getting a boat next spring, I will have to see if the money allows it... I have the 4 cycle so prob limited to around a 3500lb boat (which is good cant afford much more). What are people running. I was looking for a 18-20 foot fiberglass/aluminum closed bout ocean going boat... It is alaska after all... not the most friendly place. I love lake boats, but not much of a market up here for that. I know I love the etec motors.... Was looking at a trophy 18' walkaround. or a hewes craft searunner..

my dad has a etec engine and they are awesome. you can winterize them on the trailer just by doing some easy throttle sequences. it is good on gas and oil and it has a lot of power he has the 200 h.o

Keep an eye on boat trader.com you may be able to pick up a deal. I was looking for a while, limited funds.

I was about to give up when a friend told me of a Ranger bass boat for sale. It is a 1984 18' Ranger with a 1991 Mercury 175. I paid $3800. It needed some work. I replaced the carpet myself, Cost about $220. Professionally it would have cost $1500. Over the years I have done some upgrades. 3 New Optima batteries,New trolling motor,New GPS/fishfinder. I have had some occasional repairs. Some I did myself, others I took to a shop. Overall a good boat for the money.
