Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

FWIW you mentioned wanting to go to the San Juans and Gulf Islands from Puget Sound and as someone who has done it with a small boat/outboard, I can tell you I feel much better in a larger boat/inboard--big water/straits out there and many times we were swamped by ferries/large freighters, even a Coastie who flew out to check us out only to bury our engine with his wake. I'd be patient and wait for the right combination of low cost/safe boat...
