I' getting ants in my pants

I'm off on vacation to find the boat as soon as work pemits. I expect to be gone almost a month. I an certain that I want a double ender, either canoe or rounded stern. What other boat brands besided Tayana, Valiant and Hans Christian are there with the cute little tails. I've always been a bit of a butt man myself and these girls are showing pretty butt. Any others I should look at? Cutter rigs are also looking real good to me.

Thanks gentlemen for any advice with which to help me. Have a great day!!

I'm on an HC36 right now; check out the Union Polaris 36 as well; it's the same boat.

Canoe stern

They're a little unconventional, but check out the Tanton 43 and 45. They are easy to single hand and sail very well.

The things I would do is go through all of the pages on this forum to build a list of "interesting" boats, and then go to yachtworld to get pictures, prices, and geographical locations of boats. Use google to search for more info and other boats for sale not listed on yachtworld. Make alternative plans if a boat or broker is not available so you aren't wasting time, but don't be a no show if you have made arrangements to view a boat.

You can go to Advanced search for new and used boats and yachts. - YachtWorld.com and do a search for Keyword = Crealock, Robert Perry or Lyle Hess and also put in parameters for price, length...
Also, more info is available on designers and their sailboats at Sailboat List - Production Sailboat History including builders and links to Class Asssociations
