Need Large Boat for Ecuador

Hello everyone. I am going to Ecuador for 3 weeks, January 14th through February 5th. I was wondering if anyone will be or knows anyone in Ecuador who could sell or rent me a large boat in Ecuador? I already talked to Rodrigo, but he wants 500 dollars for the 20 days plus 500 to warranty the boat and i'd rather just buy something for that price and maybe be able to sell it at the end or whatever. Boats that would work off the top of my head: Villain, Shiva, Karnali, Nomad 8.5, large Bazooka, large mamba, maybe big stomper but the last time I tried sitting in a stomper the seat was too narrow not sure if it was an 80 or a 90. Any help or advise would really be appreciated!

Over the years I have been down there several times. One good thing is there are runs from creeks to big water close together. I have a Remix 79 and think that would be an ideal boat for the varied conditions in Ecuador.

Bring your own boat. 200.00 to take it with you on the plane. Just be sure to call it a Wave Ski...

Thecraw, thank you for the advice. I have already considered that option and decided it would be a last resort. I'm at the futa and my boat is super beat up from my time in Chile. The boat isn't worth the 400 dollars to take it back to the United States and then to Ecuador. I can also probably sell it down here for something as opposed to in the U.S. and I am getting a new boat in the States but I won't have it in time for my trip to Ecuador, hence my blog post.
