    Default New boat

    I'm thinking about trading in my 2007 Nitro 901-CDX on an aluminum center console boat. Something large enough to fish two people side by side out of the front. Any recommendations?

    There's a nice Sea Ark in the personal classifieds. I believe it's around LOZ somewhere.

    I just went from a big aluminum Xpress to a 896 Nitro. Much prefer the glass boat for spider rigging.
    Just think it over before makin the switch.

    Yeah, I priced some new ones out today and I just can't see myself paying that kinda money. My Nitro is a 2007 with under 200 hours on it. I bought it 4 years ago for a 1/3 of the price these boats are now. I was just thinking it would be a nice boat for Pomme de Terra. Park it on the gravel and take a swim. Hate doing that in the fiber glass boat.

    I hear ya. The one I bought is a 99 model with less than 300 hrs on the Opti.
    I plan to put a Keel Shield on it just for what you're talking about and also for ramps without courtesy do ks.

    If you want to pull up in shallow water to take a swim a shallow water anchor system would be way cheaper than a new boat. Maybe install a keelshield if you don't have one already
    Stop writing songs that rhyme "do" and "you"...come up with something else

    I'm thinking that's what i'll probably do. The thought of a four stroke motor and all new bells and whistles got me excited until I started looking at the prices. For days we want to take the dogs we'll take out the old 99 triton and I just park it on the bank in a calm area. Who's spending that much money on a new boat these days? I was looking at a 2019 Lowe 22' center console bay boat and they were between 35-45K!!! Thanks for your inputs, I appreciate it for sure. Now if Pomme would go down a few more feet I would like to get after those crappie

    Time for dealers to close out 19s if you’re committed to that route. I believe you can get into an 18-20’ for less than you found but depends greatly on adds on and accessories like electronics, troller, etc. In this day and time of $2500 trolling motors and $5 - 15k electronics it adds to the total quickly. And if you’re looking for the best price don’t trade your current boat, buy outright. Saying that I think you are getting some worthwhile advice from those posting above. Aluminum and fiberglass both have pros and cons. Good luck.

    Maybe trade a car...NEVER EVER TRADE A BOAT!
