H28s are great full keel boats under 30 feet. Are you looking at one made by compass
yachts? They are small but very sea worthy. But you know all of that. Hard to beat for the price
with the confidence of a good design under you. I personally love the transom hung rudder
and the one I sailed in the past was surprising light on her feet, being able to keep steerage with only a few knots of apparent with working sails
only. If I wasn't a couple that live aboard full time I would buy one in a heart beat.
