I am thinking about purchasing a boat that will serve a few purposes and I am looking for suggestions. Price should be $25K or less.
1. Take the family and maybe a few friends (7-8 total) out on the inter-coastal and bay on days when there is no surf. Drive around, pull up to sand bars and barrier islands, wake board/ski, drink, eat and maybe fish.
2. Take surfboards (4+) and family across inter-coastal to the good southern NC surf spots only accessible by boat when there is surf.
Thoughts/recommendations?
