    This is a good question.

    I don't have any good answers, but this might give you some leads.

    Local boat storage yards might sell stuff off cheap to recover unpaid rents.

    Cops and banks do repossesions

    You can put in the amount you want to pay in places like www.boatraderonline.com, Used Boats for Sale | A Boat Trader Directory of Yachts and Boats, Boat and Yacht Sales, Buy Boats and Yachts - YachtWorld.com and see what pops up.

    Then of course are the auction yards that handled all the damaged stuff for Katrina, but it can cost more to haul it than its worth lots of time.

    IMMEMSA sells bare mexican pangas that you can retrofit. A 26' runs $4200-

    Try looking for a few non-profit charities in your area. There's one in Vegas within eye shot of the freeway and I see donated boats there all the time.

    One way is to travel the alleys and look for boats just sitting in backyards, obviously neglected and a lazy owner who doesn't give a *&#@$ about advertising it, but would sell it to the first guy who offers a little $...proven method
