We've been looking casually for a Lancer, or a fiberglass CC Super Sport (1980ish inboard), or an inboard Corsair, the smaller the better in the 17 to 20-foot range, maybe could go 23. Not much pickings out there.
Found the blue 1971 in Cummings GA, bad transdrive, and a few others, but sheesh, not much to pick from (especially in SE USA) within reasonable striking distance.
Anyone knowing of a local boat for sale, lemme know, as ebay and the internet listings just don't have much. Not really interested in a bow rider, would go for a clean transdrive but prefer an inboard.
Could potentially go to $8000 but would naturally rather pay half that much. Found a beautiful glass Century that fits our needs, but just can't seem to warm up to owning a Century. Of course, a Commander would be great, but not in Montana!
Since Bill Thomas first posted the Lancer info here, I've been learning more about the series and they are pretty cool boats. Any glass CC inboard, including the glass Super Sports would work. Don't think I'll be able to afford an exotic XK but might spring for a XK-22 if the price is reasonable.
So many boats, so little time !
