Default Where is the best place/website to look for used boats?

I am in the market for a 20-foot bay boat with a 150HP engine on the back primarily for inshore fishing, and the occasional wakeboarding trip and near/offshore fishing. I have looked all over craigslist, boattrader.com, and boat.com and I haven't been able to find any good used boats. Any recommendations on where I should look?

Boattrader.com, boats.com and yachtworld.com are three good ones.

Those and Craigslist are the popular ones, but amazing enough all their search and filter capabilities SUCK. I use google to search and narrow my search with them.

I found my FW on CraigsList.

The actual good deals, AKA boats that aren't piles of garbage, are usually gone within 24-72 hours. You need to JUMP on those FAST if you're serious. Get the seller on the phone and start interviewing them, find out why it's really for sale before going to even look at it.

facebook/market

They last about 12 hours if they are a deal.

Missed two on the way to the bank for money.

Facebook’s Marketplace and the different brands’ respective owners groups have quite a few boats for sale.

Craigslist use posted today filter. Check often. Anything in by owner section on CL on for more than 2-3 days is generally old over priced or issues. Boat dealers and brokers cruise the CL by owner section for under market deals constantly. Not just boats.
