There’s something to be said for a nice round number and $8K certainly fills the bill. Which, I suspect is why there are a plethora of boats for sale for just that amount.
Some of which are even turnkey.
There are myriad reasons that a good boat might be selling for such a number and the best way to find such a beast has a lot to do with understanding the whys.
More about that tomorrow as I have a hot date with some plywood, epoxy, and a transom-related project that needs doing.
