A search of traderonline.com as suggested by someone for boats around 36 feet and under $50,000- lists the following. Ranger
37, Jouet 36, Abbott 36, S2 36, Ericson
35, Tartan 34C, Cal
36, Halberg Rassey CC, C&C35. The Abbott is the most appealing to me and a 73 Pearson
also looked good. I have not seen any of these boats up close and have not sailed on any of them. I would appreciate opinions on any of the above, if they are worth looking at, or if I should drop them off the list. I am more concerned with a proven solid hull
and rig than I am about interior
niceties. The 73 Pearson
in what appears to be nice condition is listed at $32500- and that leaves room for a lot of new pieces.
