hi. I am in search for a center console fiberglass boat ranging from 16-17 feet. No larger due to lack of driveway space. Id prefer a newer motor that run well. Ideally a 4 stroke but will look into a 2 stroke. I am 16 so my budget is around 5k. I understand that what I am asking is picky but I just want to be as safe as possible as I will be taking the boat to the islands and patty fishing.
Thank you

16' to the island? That sounds bit risky imo.

I have and would take my 17 to Catalina but it is risky. Not sure if there's a 5k boat that I would trust to take to the island.

I would take my small 13’ aluminum skiff to the break wall and out of La Jolla. I sold it for safety reasons. It is risky but that’s fishing on a budget haha. I am careful and pick the days. I know it’s a long shot for the budget but I just wanted to see if anyone could help if they see one or if they have one themselves

Good luck with the search. There are plenty of rigs capable of fulfilling your needs for that $5k price tag. Be patient is all I can say.
I take my 16 CC to the island all the time. Like you said, you pick your days......
