Check craigslist classified, in both the Ft. Myers page and the Sarasota page, since we are in the middle.
Pick up the free Waterline magazine at most bait shops and browse their classifieds in the back.
Pick up the Florida Mariner magazine, which is published bi-weekly and is all FL boat sales, both private and brokered.

I have always thought some of the older scouts have the same lines as a grady.

One thing I don't like about a lot of the gradys and this scout included is the cut out transom. Offshore it gets wet if you're thinking about going off the coast. But on the other hand, they are nice boats. I like an outboard on a bracket with a full transom. But again, when fishing they do get in the way. All a compromise I guess....
Harbor wise perfect unless you loose power and a storm comes up.
I'll be in the same 'boat' with choices once I get fully in the market

My pie in the sky plan is to get the 19' and stay in the Harbor. Then get a 2nd bigger boat for Gulf cruising

Hmmm, maybe a Yellowfin with Trips? I'd offer to pay for fuel for a ride but I couldn't afford it. I'd love that too!

I have an 18 Flats & Bay (hard to find), incredible boat, soft ride, dry and creep into 10"...A 90 Honda, pretty quick but when it comes time to repower, will look at 140 Suzuki...I like to overpower, cruise at
32/3400, burn nothing, easy on engine...and the is power there when a squall showing.

Take a look on "thehulltruth", lots of boats, but from all over the country.....microskiff.com another site.
