based on the panga.com boats what do you prefer and why?
a 17 mountak or that one.
any help I'll appreciate, i really don't know what to do or what to buy.

But to answer your question. I would take the panga over the Montauk, considering the money you're looking at. You can power that thing and get a trailer for less than 22.5K easy. For 3K, I'd be all over that boat. That is the classic Caribbean style...more heavily built than the Panga brand. Obviously you live there, but I spent three years working down there and know that boat can take some beating. That's my two cents.

One thing I would think about is how you are going to treat the boat. I always prefer something I can beach without worrying too much about rocks. If your whaler gets dinged and takes on water it will turn into a tank.
The one other advantage you might find with a panga is just that you wont stick out like a sore thumb. Flying low profile will probably get you in better with the local fishermen. At least in Baja.
