Been sailing since I was 10 years old. Learned on dinghys and small sloops on the east coast
. Moved to Seattle
in 1994 and quickly discovered the beauty of PNW waters. Began chartering small sloops (<25 feet) out of Seattle
and Everett before purchasing
an 1967 Islander Bahama 24 with my wife a few years ago. Loved the Islander but we decided to move up in size and comfort. Hoping to find a 28-32 footer for less than 20K. Have appointments to view a 1985 s2 9.2A, 1977 Endeavour
32, Yankee 30 Mk I, and a 1976 Columbia
9.6 this weekend. Opinions on the sailing characteristics of any of these vessels would be welcome.
