Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound
A Capri 25 is indeed more of a racer and will have the interior comforts that go with that.. pretty much none. It's a pretty boat and quick for its size, nice big cockpit and will make a terrific daysailer but not much of a weekender compared to say a Ranger 26 or a Catalina 25..
Contacts through craigslists are often problematic.. I'm not positive that all 'emails' get through to the seller.
