I see you included grady white in your list so I'll tell you I own one and they are very well built and the customer service is excellent.
I have the 20' WA and hope to move up in a few years. The 23' Gulfstream is a great all-around boat.


Just my 02 cents worth

That Mako is nice looking. For $30-50K, you can get a heck of a boat. You could buy a new Grady WA in the low 20' range for $40K. Check out TF classifieds. Or boats.com. Throw Parker in there too (even though I have a Grady). I believe new ProLines have all-composite construction, meaning there is no wood in the hull or transom to rot. This is a very appealing thing if you want your boat to last 'forever'.

But, do you want a $50K boat, or do you want a $30K boat w/ $10K in electronics and fishing gear and a $10K buffer in the bank? Personally, I'd go with this option.

I found my boat on www.boattraderonline.com You can search between 90,000 & 100,000 boats using a variety of different search criteria. They also have links to boat reviews. I also purchased my new boat name (3M vinyl - easy to put on) from a link on that site. Good luck! Mike
