Welcome to CF.... There are TONS of boats out there to be had, and most reasonable in this soft market.... As others have said... don't get hung up on the ketch, but more importantly.... DON'T get hung up on the first few boats you ARE interested in....
Don't be afraid to ask for opinions when you do find "the one".... And... I would take your new dockmate looking if you want some cheap
