Input Sought on a Sabre 38
My partner and I are in the market for a 37-40', 1980's vintage boat. The MK I is on our radar screen as a solid, fun boat to sail. The MK II may be too pricey for us.
The boat will be used on the Great Lakes, here in the US. They are a large, and unpredictable body of water. Most of our use will be 3-5 hour day sails, but we do plan a couple of 100-200 mile trips per year.
We value solid boats, good craftsmanship and an enjoyable sail. Although I don't have much sailing experience, my partner has logged 8000+ miles.
Does anyone have experience with the MK I or II? Does the boat sail well, and has it held up? Should the balsa cored hall be a concern?
