Shouldn't be too difficult I would have thought in the current economic climate although prices are often cheaper at the end of the season. I would just comment that you don't necessarily need a cab. I mean who goes out when its likely to be pouring with rain?
For myself, I would choose a completely open boat as you get more fishing room that way. More particularly I would probably try to find a 16 ft Orkney as you don't need a lot of power (hence less petrol) to push it along at a rate fast enough for fishing.
I think I would just put 16ft Orkney in google or yahoo search engines and see what turns up. You could even try ebay or similar too as it can be surprising what can sometimes turn up.

This is what I use for pottering about on the water in sheltered area's, Easy to launch and recover, 5 hp engine with electric backup plus oars and uses less than a gallon of fuel a trip.
