I have a boat. I have a 2004 Sea Ray Sundeck 240, and Sea Rays are nice boats. Cobalts, Tahoes, Mastercrafts, are also good boats. There are more than that, I just can't name them off of the top of my head.

Are you an experienced boater?
Are you going to be boating on a river lake or ocean?

I've boated my entire life and have handled 50ft center consoles, so yeah.
Mostly river and lake, but maybe with the right boat some ocean action.

Yeah, glad I asked, you probably know more and have more experience than me. But I think your smart to get something that can handle the rougher waters of the ocean in case you go there, want her seaworthy

We have a Ski Nautique 200 closed bow that we use for water skiing and that we have outfitted with barefooting riggings. It has a 450 engine and is bad ass! Really it depends on what you want the boat for that should determine the kind of boat you get.

Are you looking for something good to fish off of?

I really like evinrude etec engines. I want to customize a barefoot rig and I'd probably use a sanger hull with an evinrude etec to power it.

For fishing, I like what you've picked out but wonder if you need a bit more power than 250 for ocean going hull?
