That would be easiest.. but you don't need to limit yourself to Puget Sound per se. The delivery from southern BC is not bad esp if you choose the right weather and tides, and Pt Roberts is another possible motherlode of sadly disused boats that may be available. Right now you'd have a slight Dollar value advantage buying in Canada.

I know of a nice Tanzer 26 (Sloop Du Jour) in Pt Roberts for sale, it's listed at near 10K but I'd suggest that any bonafide offer might be considered. It's at Steelaweigh.. They are a boat with a good reputation, will sail well and have a decent interior for it's size.
