Money! I just knew someone would bring that into the equation. Funny how you start talking about boats, and before you know it the conversation is Money!!!!
Yes, I am a man of modest means. I was hoping to fine my dream for under $150K.
Better yet, finding a pissed off wife of a 50 year old man that has run off with his 24 year old secratary, and the husband, being a little light headed due the the lack of blood to his brain still, calls the wife instructing her to sell his 62' Oster then send him the proceeds from the sale. Of course I just happen to drop by when she is ending this conversation with her husband with $50.00 in my pocket.
Oh, maybe a little more wine!
Back to reality, I have looked at sailboats from $50K to $150 with the biggest difference being the maintenance. I mostly wanted to know which brands have the best reputation for hull strength, durabilty, overall quality workmanship. Whatever I buy, I am sure I will start dropping Money(there is that damn word again)into. I just want to know what I start with will be worthy of the upgrades.

Life is too short to own an ugly boat!
