dodgeboatguy is on a distinguished road
glad to hear someone mention the macgregor I sail a 1979 222 I bought for 2500 in very nice shape but there are many out there under 2000 that are more than seaworthy for galveston bay as for the 26 it might be more than you want to trailer with a small jeep my dodge dakota v6 does ok with my 22 but I dont think it would like me much if I went to a 26. they are great boats though and mine only draws about 16" keel up. you will also get the benifit if learning how to sail with a jib
