Help picking a boat

My wife and I are looking for a sailboat for our family. The issues that we have to work with are making it somewhat difficult. We have three children so the boat should have five berths. We also have a 45 ft. bridge to deal with, so a mast height of 44ft or less is needed. We have about $20K to spend. We looked at a Bristol 29.9 and liked what we saw but they are more than $20k. A Morgan 34 would also work but the ones that we have looked at have been in sorry shape. We like classic lines. Given the large amount of expertise that this group represents we are hoping that someone will come up with some good suggestions.

Thanks
