Maybe while you're looking at boats get down and see if you can reach hoses, filters, through hulls, etc. It is a boat but if you find the right one and you can handle the projects, it can ruin you in a great way.
That's the reason to con my way onto as many boats as possible, I bring the booze and you let me service your engines.....

The two hips are great but the back and the knee groan a bit.....
