Hello from the PNW

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.

Re: Hello from the PNW

Hi...Welcome to the forum. All good choices. I'm partial to the Yankee 30. Active racing fleet (at least in S.F.) great designer (S&S) and great little cruiser if it needs to be. Price wise, they are kind of sleepers.

Re: Hello from the PNW

Thanks. We are looking at the Yankee 30 tomorrow. The owner, an active club racer on other boats, has invested quite a bit of time and money into this Yankee. The beta 16hp with 500 hours is definitely a plus. On the down side, her roller furling genoa is a North Sails Laminate Kevlar 140 would not be my first choice for a cruising headsail. Prices for Yankee 30s are all over the place. The 20K asking price for this boat seems on the high side. Thoughts?

Re: Hello from the PNW

Year? MkI,II or III? The fact it has a diesel is a huge plus. Asking $20K, maybe take $17.5K. Or if on the market awhile now and going into the winter months, perhaps $15.5
Either way get a survey before handing over the $$$

Re: Hello from the PNW

1971 MKI #12. Just went on the market last week. Is it OK to attach the seller's CL post on this thread?

Re: Hello from the PNW

Yes you can. But if it was a MkIII for $4K, it might get sold from underneath you. That said, a MkI I think is a little pricey at $20K.
Here's one in San Rafeal... http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/boa/5228320827.html
It's a MkIII with a diesel and much newer
