I don''t know where you are located, but this may affect your decision. On the west coast, I would also look at the Santana 20 or Wavelength 24, both built by W.D. Schock Company. Both of these are available for under 10k and the WL 24 has a real "big boat" feel for its size. The Santana 20 has a very well developed one-design class in California, but not so much here in the Pacific Northwest. A few years ago, we had a Sprinta Sport that did very well in PHRF, but I haven''t seen it listed lately. Other boats common here that are available for under 5k are the Thunderbird (26'') and the San Juan 24. Both have class associations.
