Aside from your house or car, a boat is probably one of the biggest purchases that you will ever make. With that in mind, it is important to do some research before dropping thousands on a watercraft. One of the most important things to consider is whether you want an inboard or outboard motor.
Outboard boats tend to be less expensive and our good for fishing and other leisurely water activities, while an inboard is a near necessity for extreme water sports. In this down economy, many people are considering buying a used boat and saving some money. If you are considering this route, put the boat through a strict vetting before finalizing your purchase. Aside from inspecting the hull and outer surfaces, also examine the engine to ensure that the previous owner maintained the system with Evinrude XD 100 and other essential fluids.
