Looking for pontoon boat

Looking for 16 to 20 foot pontoon boat with or without 10 to 20 horsepower motor. Prefer one inexpensive needing a little work.

Rippinlip... is there any area in particular or travel distance restrictions?  In other words if I found one in 'middle of nowhere, Indiana county' would that be ok or are you wanting to stay more local to where ever you are?

I was over near Pymie a few weeks ago fishing with my son, I seem to remember seeing a place selling older used pontoons, they looked like old "rental" boats.
Don't ask me where, he was driving and I don't know the roads over there!
I know we left the causeway and drove a out 20 minutes to a bait shop at a lady's house...it was somewhere between those places!
I will ask him where it was, he commented about " cheap boats" as we drove past.
 
Edit, 
He texted back saying it was in Linesville but didn't know the name  of the place.

I would like to suggest contacting the marinas at any lake. Marinas where they rent pontoons often sell their used boats and/or know where a guy can locate one.

Also, I believe West Bay Marine just outside of Jamestown PA.
advertises he buys used boats.

Might be worth the phone call.

Fisherlady thank you. I'm not against taking a drive to look at one.

They are where the pizza shop was on Rt6 heading out of linesville toward Wilson boat launch. I believe they are old rental pontoons from the linesville marina. If I get over that way this weekend I'll try to stop and take a picture

Have you checked the pennswoods.net classifieds (rennug)?  There is a 20' project boat on there for $3k.  Looks like a good bit of work, but might be what you are looking for.

Kid texted me that their number is 814-683-4943.
He didn't give their name.
