Question WHERE did you find your boat?

I've been looking for the right boat for me and my family. I have figured my budget, and size, and focused upon a specific make, model and year range (1985-1991). One issue that I have not read about is where people find boats, and what resources are best.

I have been searching Yachworld listings, but these appear to only be broker listings. I've read here, and other places horror stories about brokers. I have also found this tool: Sail Boat Listings to search all US CraigsList sites, and SailBoatListings.com. Unfortunately, I have found that the listings in YachtWorld are far more easily searchable than the free-sailboat-listings tool.

My question to the community is this; If you were looking for a 35-40 foot cruising sailboat in the US, where would you look?

Thanks in advance!
