Default most solid 21'-24' walk around? Dealers and mechanics input appreciated

I am looking for a used 21'-24' walk around with preferably an outboard motor. What brands are solid and respectable, yet still affordable? What brands should I avoid?

Been looking at walk around boats between around 1990 to 2005. Trying to find one in a price range of about $5000-$12000.

Would Proline be a brand to avoid? Saw a 2003 22' for 10K. My Uncle says Prolines are cheap and he doesn't like them, but other input is welcome

Not familiar with Dusky. I am in CT. A bit too far to go to pick up a boat. Thanks for the heads up though

Sometimes (many times) the right boat is worth the drive.

Seastriper? I would agree though that if you’re trying to find the best boat fir your money, it might involve a bit of travel.

Proline boats are a fine mid tier boat. Boats that old it comes down to condition and maintenance.

Glad you posted _your_ affordable budget. Given new boat prices I was thinking $30K-40K was affordable.
