Re: Ideas on which dinghy/small boat to buy?

if you can find one in your neck of the woods.. the GP14 is a wonderful sailing dinghy. Mainsail, Jib, Spinnacker, CB, able to hold four adults in a pinch and if you get a boom tent, you can even sleep aboard for a weekend of Gunkholing

Consider them a smaller little sister to the Lightning.

While never very popular in the states, they are all over the UK. I think one of the biggest "pockets" of them is just south of your location in Southern NJ. I know of two fleets in Cape May County
