Help need a boat very soon.

Unread post by Shooter »

:eyepopping: I have been looking till my eyes are bleeding.
I need to find an 18 foot by like 54 MUD boat very soon now.
I have been looking from coast to coast. It looks like all the same boats are listed all over the net but there are only like 10 that are not from 5 years ago listings.
I'm looking for near new to 10 years old, an actual mud hull with or can have a surface drive motor 40 hp or more. I want an FNR drive unit, mud buddy, Go devel, Backwater, or similar. It looks like Mud buddy has the bigger ones. BOSS has Big ones but I don't think they're what I want. Gator tail, Go devel, excel, and venom are real mud hulls. Has to be with a trailer and under $20K delivered to my door in MT.
Does anyone have one, know of one know of somebody that has one or sitting in a boat dealer lot.
It a cash sale on the spot if it is right.
Please help me out!
:cry: :reeling:

I have been Emailing boatyards for a week now and getting a slue of prices and pictures.
All the used ones are either smaller than I want or Really used. And most on the southeast coast.
A used one comes with a lot of neat stuff the owner has added.
I was kinda getting ready to settle for something, not 100% what I wanted.
Then, here is the DANG part.
I feel like I'm on shark tank and Keven offered me a fair deal but right at the last minute Mark pops up and gives me what I asked for, but not all the extra stuff a used one would give me.
I get a Quote from Mud Buddy today.
For a new one.
