Good day - I appreciate the help and insight provided by this site. The active members are very encouraging, even when it seems like a lashing. I have been looking for a while and I am now close to choosing.
My revised goal (based on discussions here) is Chesapeake bay
sailing, and I will be overnighting two nights a week. When the family
is sailing it is two adults and two teens. I moved down in size, back to one I am more comfortable with handling.
The contenters are:
32' Catalina 320 Sloop
31' Catalina 310...............2001.....$68k
We have yet to look at the 320, but I am told she is worth a consideration. I do question the $5k more and 6 years older, but I am trying to remain open.
Presuming they are all in similar shape, I welcome comments from anyone familar with the list as owners/mechanics/etc.
