Look up "The Fishlocker" on YouTube, John has done several videos on boats, what to look for etc. He's a top bloke and will be happy to answer questions directly through his Facebook page.

Funnily enough I've just this minute finished watching his latest video on shark fishing, amazing stuff.

Think long and hard about buying a boat( money pit) including storeage, towing and launching. Remember there is no RAC at sea.

I had one of the original Alaska 500's , great fishing platform.
Mine only had a 50HP outboard which was the minimum you needed to get it on the plane with 3 people on board.
Nearly bought a 16' fastliner (Not sure if they still do them) but the Alaska had a lot more usable deckspace, higher freeboard and was much more stable at anchor and on the drift.

Good little boots (y)
