Looking for a budget board

I am looking for a low cost board (ideally <$100, at most in the $100-$200 range), hopefully for a short term use to help me transition from my Kona One (with which I am fairly comfortable at my beginner level) to a 114L board (that is above my level tippy at this point). I am thinking 140-170L range might work, ideally around 150L. Doesn't have to look good (beat up ok) as long as it serves the purpose. Probably 2000 or newer, but open to looking at older. Beyond that, it would be nice - but not necessary- if it's on the wide side (78-85cm) and tuttle box for possible foiling would be bonus.
I know this is a lot to expect for the money I am willing to spend at this time but too many other toys in the garage; hoping that I won't hold onto or badly need this too long. Thought worth a try...

Six hours by car but a great set up for the money. The CL link is broken but he has his email listed.

Edit: Link that I omitted but Gene was looking after me: http://triangleboardsailing.com/forum/index.php?topic=1499.0

Re: Looking for a budget board

Thank you William. The board looks ideal and I wouldn't mind the drive but, if he is only selling as a package and somewhere close to $1000, then too much money for me at this time and I really don't think i want to acquire all the extra equipment (unless I then try to sell them but not really good at that). I just got Marek's carbon boom and hope to be set with sails once I add your 4.7 Np. I then need to try the foil and a 150ish board. Maybe Chris's formula -unless you think this guy might unload the board without the rest?

These are all questions are good ones, they are better answered by the seller rather than me speculating. Find out what he's asking and what he actually has since his link isn't linking.

Good luck!

That's the top post on the FB windsurfing classifieds. Surprised if it's still around but can't hurt to ask. Hamdi did pick something up for a temporary solution.
