Wanted: Big boy Play Boat

Anyone have a line on a used big boy (190 pounds) playboat for less then $500? Something along the lines of a super star or project 52?

MR

At 190 I'm at the top end of the 52, but as a beginner play boater I think I would rather be on the bottom end of something rather then the top end like I would be in the 62. Ideally I would be in the middle like in the medium Rev but 180-190 seems to be the breaking point for a lot of the models.

I currently have a EZG 60 that I'm selling in favor of a "true" modern play boat.

Bad: I'm 5-10 and about 190 - 200 lbs, depending on season. Loved the Project 52 for strict playboating, but didn't like it for down-river play that much. I was so close to the top of the weight range that when I threw lunch, a water bottle and first aid in the stern I was like a submarine going down river. Traded in for a Project 62 and have been much happier for down-river play. (the P62 fits a breakdown fishing pole just fine too!) Just some food for thought.

I'm looking for a strict playboat. I'm going to have a down river boat as well.
