I bought mine off Craigslist. There are some good deals there. They asked 3000 for it and I wound up giving 2000. You need to get one so you can hunt cause it's not looking like we'll be going this year.

I have been checking, there aren't that many listed so I was wondering if more would pop up after season. I have been going every day almost for the last couple weeks. Boat no boat doesn't really stop me.

I bought mine in about August of last year. How much are you wanting to spend? Here's some starters:

There's some more on there too. FYI I think a trolling motor is a must for picking up dekes, throwing them out, and getting ducks if you don't have a dog. My jon is hard to steer going slow and the motor is too loud.

yea man no prob. its probably like when mzl season is over with you see a buncha mzldrs go on sale and tree stands as well. i'm sure its a lot like that some people will get rid of em thinking well i aint gonna need my duck boat till nov. so i'll just sale this one and get another one next year when i need it. also with the economy the way it is people will probably be selling em for that reason also, but if i was you i would keep my eyes peeled. what kinda boat are you looking for length wise, tiller or console, size motor, mod v or v, give me some specs and i'll keep an eye and an ear out for ya.

Nothing to over the top. About a 14-16ft boat decently wide because I will want to hunt out of it. Motor around a 25 hp tiller steer. Something in that range. I am pretty open it would be a plus to find one with a boat blind and camo but not necessary.
