Thanks for the offer RainDog but sadly I have to get this Annapolis 25 off my hands before I can afford another boat. That does sound perfect though, I may check and see if you still have it next summer (though for your sake, if youre trying to sell, I hope you don't)

There is also Gregg Nestors "Twenty Affordable Sailboats to Take You Anywhere". Seems there is more than one top 20!

Did you sail into them or not?
