I some what agree with  ..We trailer our boat and dont find it a hassle at all.. one every one has to load their boat, a bit easier on land. both need fuel cheaper on land by far!
 As for launching..we pay, undo strap, back down ramp, unhook boat from trailer,start motor , drive off, simple and easy take us 5 minutes from the time we pay till im parking the truck. We just reverse it when we pull the boat out!

 Plus the boats safe in our driveway and i can tinker with it any time i want..

 
you use WE.. but what what if it was just you.  I enjoy the slip because if I choose to go solo, its the only way to go.  I don't have to depend on a helping hand to launch and load..

I was hoping that it would be a great starter boat. Thanks for the encouragement this thread was scaring me a bit. Still second guessing but we'll see.
Capt Matt from Task Marine usually sells older, working boats at a great price.  He won't steer you wrong since he is the one that works on them.

yeah i kinda have to agree... even when i had my smaller boat (25') i really wouldnt have wanted to launch it solo on a regular basis...theres nothing better than driving to marina getting on the boat and your gone....and if you get into boats with larger beams (over 8'6") launching and retrieving is a real bear and you need a REAL truck to move it around. I keep mine at a slip because i live an hour away but....if i lived 5 mins away id still keep it at a slip  Grin ....if you cant afford a slip you cant afford a boat  Grin Grin

I use we cause were a team! , i could easy do it all by myself. I think if the boat is 25 or bigger yes a slip wood be better but were 17 so tecincally i could throw this boat around 

  When we do upgrade i will be taking that in consideration.

Don't let the conversation here deter you from getting a boat.

Most of the guys posting about this are STILL boat owners.  Grin That has to tell you something.  thumbsup2

 I grew up with boats thumbs up had one all my life. Just bought our own {me&michy} boat this year. Already looking to upgrade,{crap i also got that upgrade fever} .

 There is nothing better then heading out to sea with cool people for a day of fishing. Its a great hobby and sport to be in as long as you can keep it within your budget.......

Thank You for the Capt Matt tip. I do think I would like to stay in 17' range to start. Center Console for sure. I'll give him a call! Thanks Again
