Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound
you read my mind on the ranger, that's the one where they said they put enamel bottom paint on. I'll give him another call tomorrow and ask exactly what he meant. I could go check that one out. Port Townsend's a little far...so I want to nail down any questions I might have before I go up there.
I was reading a book at the bookstore that had short reviews on small sailboats and they had nothing but good to say about the Ranger 23.
Ok, so a no on the newport 27 in Tacoma. I want no red flags.
My short list is:
The Ranger 23
I've been trying to call and email the newport 27 in Bellingham but he hasnt answered or responded.
25' sailboat: Capri 25 named "SYZYGY"
I've talked to him, he's out of town this weekend, can show next week. I know it's more of a racer, but I like the way it looks, I read that the only boat in it's class faster is the j24. Has a good outboard.
