Thinking about adding a pair of shallow water (4'-10' depth) jigging rods & reels to my arsenal for Fluke and Sea Bass when we fish in the bays. Mostly throwing bucktails and jigs in the 3/8-3/4...

Unless the boat the OP is looking at is 27-30' and $150k or more, it is doubtful it is 1-2 years old and a $40k discount from buying the exact same boat new- in today's hot CC market, you wont lose...

Unless you know what the limits of the insurance policy are, it is tough to say what is fair, but $7k isn't it.

I would stay away - that motor was run at essentially two speeds: idle and wot with some over-revving thrown in for good measure.

In case you hadn't noticed, the economy is booming and CC's in the 20-25' range are the hottest things on the market - all of the manufactures have be going up 5-7% per year.

Tidewater 232CC (or LXF) with an F250 Yamaha, very well equipped starts at $67k.
Is the Sea Hunt 234 priced with an I4 F200 or V6 F250 - you really want a V6 on that size boat.

Unless you really want a old boat, I would stick to a 23-24' CC with a single 250-350 hp engine on it.
For $40k, you are probably looking at an 6-8 year old boat mid-tier boat like a Cobia, Robalo,...

That amp requires 10 gauge wire for its power, which means its maximum sustained draw should be 15 amps (or less) and its peak draw is 24 amps or less.
