Great job! Sounds like a fun time.

A 4x28 or 3x27 pro boat really is fun. Definitely keep your eyes open. There are a lot of them out there scattered around the country. I've had both but could never find anyone to paddle with so sold them off. You can usually find a C2 mixer (whale tail) in Kevlar for under $800 if you don't mind something a little rough. Mine was pretty ugly and I got it for $400 and sold it for about the same. Otherwise something like a Jensen 18 would be a better all around boat but still very fast. Quite a few of them too as they've been made for a long time.

I'd say start casting a wide net on Craigslist with the possibility of turning it into a weekend mini-vacation if you have to drive a long ways.
