New toy wanted

Unfortunatley not a "Power Boat" this time ( found one of them )

Looking for a 23 - 26ft trailerable 4 berth boat capable of pulling a tube (or two) ... something similar to the 2355 bayliner layout that the wife and kids + friends will be happy on ..

budget of 15-16G ( cash )

26ft Wellcraft.
This is a 'project' boat but looks pretty much complete.
Has been on the market for about 12months so could be open to offers.

Check out Boats & Outboards (Australia) there's some really nice looking sports cruisers for not a lot of money. Don't know what it would cost to ship one back to the uk though.

Although it's a horrible feeling ( not havin a BOAT ! ) i am now wondering wether it's worth waiting a couple of months for this one and concentrating on sourcing the bits for the possible "abatte" restoration ?

I know there will be a FEW bargains around once the season ends (mostley problematic old shite) but: do you think its better to wait it out or spend it now ?

PPS: "Mr Rob" a pic (or a few) of the "Abatte"

Honestly it's not as bad as it looks

The gell coat is (under the grime) in very good condition

My main concern is finding a couple of "V's" to fit in the same space as a pair of str8 sixes !

pps: give it a few more weeks and about a grand will buy it .....
