Somebody help me!

I have been bitten by the new boat bug.
With the new camp on the lake the wife has been wanting to get out on the boat more and more. The problem is the bass boat beats her to death, the water can get pretty rough at times. I started looking at boats and found pretty quick that new boat prices are still pretty high but that the used boat market is really good.

I have seen lots of boats the last couple of weeks some real dogs but some really good ones. I have found one that I think is what I'm looking for, it's a local boat (meaning never been in salt water), it has been trailered instead of being kept in the water and runs great. Anyway I made a rediculous offer and he took it so it looks lioke I have a new toy.

What do you think?

1994 Chaparall 2300SX
5.7 liter V8
Bravo 3 outdrive

Has all the canvas Bimini top with full enclosure cockpit cover the works.

That would be fine but stay away from coral because that is just another name for PINK!

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Oh yea, I couldn't give up the bass boat. It is worth more to me to keep than what I could get out of it.
