Smile thanks for input

Thanks for all the input so far. I'm new to this site and have found several other threads since I posted this one that have been very helpful also.

The sailboat will typically be kept on a lift on a boathouse - nice size lake (by inland standards?) with greatly variable water level season to season (rain dependant) - thus the need for shallow draft. Lake is Y-shaped approx. 15 miles long on each of the three legs and approx. 7 miles wide where all three legs meet. With high winds the water can get pretty rough for a landlocked lake.

The trailering option would allow the ability to experience other locations with the same boat on a limited basis. I'm new to sailing and trying to find a new boat (not overwhelmed with repair issues) that will be a good entry level but will carry me into the next decade as my sailing skills improve. I'm not looking to do any racing - mainly pleasure cruising with long term option to do short cruising trips elsewhere.
