Hi, I live in Florida, but unfortunately have no knowledge of boating at all. I was even born in Key West. Been on plenty of boats but never paid any attention. My parents moved me up to Ocala, FL when i was young. Now I am at UF about to graduate. One area I am looking at is Sarasota. And one thing Ive always wanted was a boat. Can anyone help me out, or point me in the right direction on help buying a boat? I want a NEW one. And I also want to be able to boat up and down the coast from sarasota to key west, stopping along the way. What kind of boat should I be looking for? I dont need a cabin. Can I do it for around $20,000? What brands should I look at? stay away from? Not looking to spend a bundle, just ned something that will get me around reliably. Any help would be appreciated.
