Question Walleye boat brands...what am I missing??

I'm been tourturing myself with shopping for a used walleye boat in the pacific northwest for the past couple of months. I'm not a rich man so I need a bargian but at the same time I'd like a little quality. I've gone through the discussions on what's good and what's bad. What will fall apart, etc. However I still keep looking at all brands of boats to see if I can find a good deal. I look at (in this order): Lund, Crestliner, Triton, Alumacraft, Starcraft, Lowe, G3, Smokercraft, Sylvan, Tracker, Fisher.
It's **** on wheels finding something that I really really want to go buy. By the time I make up my mind the good ones are usually gone.
Is there any hope??!!

Just wait till you purchase one and have something similar come available for less, or is a better deal.

Once you buy, stop shopping you are less likely to regret it.

Steelhead....welcome to the "Procrastinators club", I am not the president but I sure am moving up the ranks. I have been doing the same thing for going on 3 yrs....yes 3 yrs!

Do I regret not pulling the trigger? Only everyday! There have been at least 6 boats that I have decided to wait on and every time, I waited to long.

There is a saying that I used all the time when I was in the used car business "the vehicle you are looking at today is the same one someone else looked at yesterday!" Now, you and I are living it. We really should be old enough to know better, but it must be the penny pincher coming out.

Boat show season is underway. Should be some of the best deals of the year. There are factory incentives and some 2010 holdovers in some locations.

It was more of a question about what brands I'm not including in my search. I do know that if I snooze I loose (only happened once so far...) Also I'm sure that there are some great deals in the classifieds on here I just have to get the seller to drive 1,500 miles to drop it off

Of course you can take the route that seems fairly popular in these time...
You can over analyze everything to death and take the fun out of it
Then after the purchase...second guess yourself into depression ...

Ranger, Skeeter, Yar-Craft, Warrior all glass boats. All well built, all sell really fast. Keep in mind Warrior has closed the doors but that should not be of concern on a used boat out of wannanty.
