Okay, I've been looking for a boat and I've found 2 that I'm interested in.
1. 1648 Sea Ark, all welded, 25 hp. motor. $2500, not sure of the year or condition.
2. 1652 F&F, 35 hp. Johnson motor. $4000. Don't know what year either.
I haven't called about them yet, but I am tomorrow so I'll have a little more info. Just wondering what ya'lls opinions are. I've got the money to get the Sea Ark, and I can afford the F&F, but I'd kind of like to save a little more before I spend that much. (Yeah, I'm tight when it comes to money) Is there really that much difference between a 1648 & 1652? Right now I'm likin the F&F, but I'll know more after talking to the owners.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Both are good boats, I personally would go with the wider boat.

Four inches does'nt seem like much, but it can handle more weight, go shallower, and just ride better in the chop. The Sea Ark is one of the best production boats that I have seen. I have a custom made boat and the SeaArk flexes like mine and not a production boat. Good Luck.
