That one was a no go.I asked,if they kept it in a marina of their choice,if i could pay for it over 6 months.I thought maybe with the way the economy is now,they might just jump at the chance to sell it.She said she wanted to sell it outright but she would think about it also.I have seen people sell them like that.

Have you guys thought about the Cal series ? Through the 1970's they made a pretty good range of small, simple racer/cruisers. At least when you buy a Cal you know it has been well built and probably well maintained. One of the 27, 29 or 31 should suit. For 10 - 15k or so you get a clean, functioning ready to sail boat. The boats you guys have been looking at all need a pile of work. You will find yourselves spending 10k fixing the broken stuff to make the boat 5k better. Not smart.

Take a look at these. One is even single owner.
