if you can find an old 16-22 foot starcraft centrer console they make a hell of a tender for a little money. lund alaskans are gold but hold theoir value better, hard to find cheap. ask around your local sherrif departments, an old sherrif boat can usually be had cheap

18-22ft, lots of bow, & lots of beam.

Go on auctionzip.com amd do a boat search. I have seen boats sell at gun auctions for almost nothing. In this economy people are giving up boats and you should be able to find one cheap. eGrant
