With a mid four figure budget you are just gonna be looking at old boats, and you'll have to check em out for yourself. An old C-Hawk or Carolina Skiff, in good-ish shape, will serve you just as...

Plenty of options for your friend, and I won't add to the discussion on that. I will say though that I am on like my 10th boat, and my second Bayliner. First one was a 2007 175 with a 3.0...

We have a Robalo R247 which is not a 240 DC, but similar layout. Some here are die hard CC fans, but not us. We do plenty of fishing and the cockpit is plenty roomy...more open space behind the...

So much misinformation here.

Who said that there is synthetic oil in the motor? Pretty sure Yams start life with 10W-30 Yama-dino. Did i miss a post where the OP said anything about synth?

Everything is a trade off. Lots of guys leave their boats uncovered. The sun will age stuff faster, and the interior might get dirty. But boats can last a long time uncovered.

"Tarps" are 12 bucks at walmart. That appears to be a custom boat cover, likely made from an acrylic material such as sunbrella. I would guess that cost you a bit more than 12 bucks.
