need boat advice...new to sailing!

Hi all, I''d appreciate any and all advice!...My wife and I ( and our two girls 4 and 7), moved to the East Coast of Canada about 4 years ago, and have always talked about buying a small sailboat ( how can we live on the ocean and not do this, we always said!)...Recently we came into a little money ( $5,000 U.S) and before we wittle it away on food and clothing, we thought we''d have a look for a boat....Of course this isn''t exactly the best time of year ( most of the boats are away for the season), but have managed to find the following boats...Assuming reasonable condition on all, any preferences? ...1979 Goman 20, 1975 Mc Vay Bluenose 23....1972 Paceship Bluejacket 23.1975 Paceship P23 .. Keep in mind we''re new to sailing so need something forgiving, we mainly want to sail around our small bay, so a full cabin is not necessary ....Thanks for your help!!
