    I sold an immaculate D5000 that had seen very little use for 200 back in January, complete with the two kit zoom lenses and all in original boxes. Frankly it was too big and heavy for my 23 year old...

    You're welcome.

    Isn't this a superzoom bridge type camera? No interchangeable lens for those, because the lens is a fixed integral part of the body.
    But its your camera and if you insist that the lens is...

    It is a bit optimistic to think of getting a viewfinder on a camera below 150 unless you buy an used model. Not sure whether you will find a compact camera with anything other than a rear screen...

    Using it on boats and skis may indicate a more action-cam type with greater emphasis on video perhaps? Or one of those rugged waterproof jobs that you'll find in a group test or similar on this...

    EDIT
    Sorry, mis-read your number 1), so please disregard my post. I thought you were referring to the Fuji X100. Far too many X's in camera names these days!

    1) and 2) above are fixed focal length and despite being superb cameras, are probably a bit too restricting for you. As long as you I cannot comment on the others because I know nothing about them.

    It is probably OK for 100 but don't expect much for that money. A quick look at a couple of reviews would seem to confirm this. If you quickly scan a few recent posts on this forum you will see that...

    I think that the D3200 might have a macro mode on its mode-control dial. Have you tried it? There are also probably several scene and artistic modes that might be suitable. Try them all before...

    Look for alternatives. I bought a G6 complete with 14/140, which does everything I personally need apart from macro, for a very sweet price just before Christmas.
