Happy searching, and run whatever you find by PPOT

I like to read Matt's posts about boats
Yes, I agree, start looking at boats, and post them here. Let the PPOT crew give you insight into an actual boat.

Every boat like a car has a trade off. Catamarans have their place as do mon-hulls.

Posting about boats helps me forget that it’s cold outside and I’m sitting in an office slowly dying.

drcoastline,

Don't know if I answer this. I thought I mentioned, but sorry I missed it. For family purpose, we have 2 adults and 3 kids around ages of more/less 10. For diving purpose, 2 or 3 guys would be great. I don't think I will be going very far from shore, max would be couple miles out of the end of the jetty, and go from one to another spot.

Thanks drcoastline

I totally understand every boat can be for different purpose. Just like my 911 can't be my mini-van, and vice versa... and I honestly don't know which is for what. And for the learning purpose, I am asking multiple questions to get the idea for my search. So far, I think i aim on whaler with cabin, Arima, and/or similar type. But while searching, when I see something that I feel like it can match the purpose, then I wondered and asked. I can say that I am more in a "window shopping" only at this stage. Hope you guys don't mind "silly" questions, if it is too "silly" please ignore. I know when I don't receive an answer.

Thanks again guys.

The first thing you need to keep in mind those three ten year old's are going to be young adults and twice as bid in a year and a half. So you need to plan on that. Second If you have girls they need a bathroom or you will spend more time at the dock then boating. Boys can just take care of business. Lastly, I don't know conditions where you are but if you do not have sand bars, islands, etc. that you can pull up to for people to get out and move around your days and boating career with your family will be short unless people can move around. You mentioned running to Catalina Island?

You may want to look into what is called a deck boat. It doesn't do anything particularly well but does everything good enough. It is a multipurpose boat. Great for partying (lots of people), A swim platform off the back good for entry and exiting the water for tubing, skiing, and diving, A second boarding ladder in the bow (front) so you can access and exit the water from both ends. It is open so good for fishing. Most have a moderate V so Ok in choppy or roughish water. You will want to look around 25 feet or larger as this will be big enough to have a head (toilet) under the console and roomy for a group of adults to move around freely. You can also equip the boat with a Bimini to offer sun shade

Running to Catalina. Google Maps indicates Catalina is around 29 miles from Long Beach. Lets round it to 30. This means you are never more than 15 miles from land. A proper 25 foot boat, properly equipped is more than capable of running 15 miles off shore. I am not sure however I would suggest you attempt that run in a deck boat or even until you get some years experience and then choose your days.

Here is one with a Cathedral hull. This is similar to a Boston Whaler. A center hull moderate V with two pontoons. The V for cutting seas, the pontoons create stability when at rest. Makes for a nice stable swimming, diving, fishing, anchoring platform.

Here is one:

I think I’ve watched damn near every Haulover and Miami river boat video on YouTube. If nothing else they are great boat porn.

Hi everyone, I am back with 1 more question. Hope someone know the answer. I have heard many are saying Bayliner is not that good. Some even said "no", no mater what. In the mean time, I have seen many are looking for Trophy. When looking around, more than once I see a trophy boat said "Bay Liner" right on the boat.
What does that mean? Does Bay Liner make Trophy, but Trophy is a good line of Bay Liner?
Thanks in advance.

Trophy is Bayliner's fishing series of boats. No better no worse then any other . Bayliners are the Chevy of boats. Built to a price point to get people into boats. Long term the components are not the best out there.

Probably closer to a Lada or Kia - they use chopper gun - mass produced - most Bayliners I see in FL have poor quality fiberglass / wiring / and hardware.

But a cheap boat is better than no boat...

My first boat was a Tracker Tahoe, a very cheap boat. Second boat was midrange at best, a Monterey. Life is too short for cheap boats, you’ll be frustrated. Especially if you buy an old one.
