So I don't have the funds completely saved up yet, but in the near future, I will be in the market for a drift boat. I see a ton of wood drift boats on craigs list but I'm not sold on the upkeep concept and it seems a lot of them need work done. I don't want to have to sell a kidney to finance this either, I'm thinking 2 grand, maybe three, but I really don't want to put more than 3 grand into a boat i'm not gonna be around to use, I will be getting something else when I have the funds. It's basically just a quiick fix for winter fishing. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions on a set up here? Never had a river boat, only lake boats and a pontoon, so it's a foreign country to me.
