Default Want to buy bay boat

My brother is looking for a 18 to 22 foot bay boat for mostly inshore fishing. We are checking all the online sites but wanted to start with the fourum. He's looking for a like new boat, engine with warranty, everything working, etc... We live near Birmingham and planning on coming down in the next few weeks to look around.

(I checked the for sale area)

There is a guy in Milton with a Big O. It is a Lake and Bay mold. The boat has a Mercury racing motor on it. He says it will do 90 + Mph.

Check Boat trader.....I don't really think you want a 90 mph boat.... I certainly don't.

There is a Hewes at one of the Credit Unions on Stewart street in Milton for sale. It is a repo. They want $35,000.00 for it. I'm sure they would welcome an offer.

I think it is a 2008 21 redfish with a Yamaha V-Max. 250 Hp.?????

When I was looking for a boat I searched the internet daily beginning about this time of the year and found a good deal. I knew a couple of brands to look up and I was persistent. I also checked Boat Trader which is a good source for comparisons. Most of the dealers also have their used boats are online. Have a good marine mechanic look at it for you before you buy. It is worth the extra money.

The Hewes that boardfeet was talking about is now down to 29K, if interested I bet the credit union would take 25K. Here is the link:

Also here is a 2002 Hewes 18' that has been in dry storage it's entire life for 15K looks like a good deal.
