If your going to buy new it is about impossible to beat Alumitec as they are 45 minutes from Citrus and will build you exactly what you want to ensure your current rigging drops on. They also have given an MSO in past dealing which allows the boat to be titled as their brand where some others give receipt and it's called home made.

As far as buying used Hammant and DB build sweet little boats.

Have you considered talking to Ron Bailey about one of his fiberglass boats? His hulls were designed for running Citrus. BrownWater just did one up for a guy a few weeks ago and it was a very light build with cut down sides. I'm fairly certain he has put a Bailey hull out with a GPU and would build it a little lighter for you a bunch cheaper than an aluminum boat. If you need a contact PM me as we see him about twice a month out riding.

I’m another alumitech fan. I bought one of their boats used, but they’ve been great every time I’ve brought the boat to them for work I wanted done to the rigging. The hull is strong and rides flat.
