    You mean like this : https://www.crappie.com/crappie/pers...aft-boat-sale/

    I have fished out of a Tracker TX17 w/50Merc ... and they are easily pushed around by wind/waves. But then so are some glass boats, unless they're deep V & heavy. My own ProCraft 16 w/90Merc is subject to being blown around by the wind, and believe me when I say that the wind seeks me out wherever I go on the water. Nonetheless, I just adjust and continue on as best I can.

    Keep your eyes on the Personal Classifieds ... you just never know when a bargain boat will appear.

    For that money you could buy Skeetbums Bumble Bee bass boat listed in classifieds. It is a very sweet ride.

    A member has a nice boat for sale in the classified section here in your price range. Not sure where exactly in Alabama you are but his listing says Starkville, MS which isn't a bad drive unless you are from the south part of the state or all the way on the east side.

    I got a tournament pro 17 with 50 ho motor and yes it does get blown around, but a couple of buckets in either side and a chain out the back I can fish in up to 12mph winds.

    I got a new to me boat in March. 15' John type boat, no idea who made it but it's pretty old. Has a 2014 20hp Honda on it. Might have got it for less but I don't dicker on anything. This one they wanted $3000 for and it was good by me so got it. Looked at a lot of boats finding this one and I swear, people seem to think their boat is made of gold! Inexpensive boats are out there but ya have to look. If you need a boat with a big motor your probably gonna pay out the nose. Price a new motor. I figure I bought my motor and they threw the boat, trailer and bunch of other stuff in for free!
