Hey Cubandude...welcome to Cruisers Forum.
I cant directly answer your question about the boat directly, but I can suggest you have a look at our search function, especially the Google bit.
Loads of inexpensive and cheap boat posts there...its a popular subject.
Good luck with the search and let us know what your finding.

I love my boat, I can't afford not to!
Welcome aboard...look for some of the old McGregor boats...pretty cheaply built so cheap to buy new at the time even....coarse you don't say where your hailing from so that may not be a readily available boat.
There are lots of used boats that are under $5000, but their condition will vary significantly. If you don't know much about sailboats, you should become friends with someone who knows how to do a quick survey on a boat to make sure you are not purchasing a problem that will put you off sailing.
