First boat help

Postby Jonezy » Wed Aug 08, 2018 9:07 pm

Hi. I've been shore fishing off the coast of cork for years and I've decided to buy a boat. I've wanted one for years and I've finally saved enough to go for it this year.I'll be mostly bottom fishing anchored but will do some trolling aswell.Do you think this boat would suit?

If I wait a month or so I could save a bit more and get a warrior 165, what do you think is the best option?

Is there anything in particular I should be wary of if I go to view it this weekend??

Any help is very welcome!

You'd be better off buying a Warrior 165 without doubt.
No harm in having a look and giving yourself something to compare with.
That boat on Done Deal seems like good value. I'd be paying lots of attention to the engine.
