Cape Cod & the Islands
Hi, I am looking at boats in the NE area for a south of Boston mooring location. My family and I use want to enjoy a boatfor a mix of day sailing as well as cruising through the canal to the Vinyard and Nantucket. My budget is $15-$20K and could go slightly higher if a deal presented itself.
I have youth racing experience on different size dinghys and cats however this purchase will be a big step up. I have read the reviews and posts on this board and now am confused on which direction to go. Should I buy a ''24, ''28 or ''32? A Catalina, Bristol, Pierson, Alberg or even a Macgregor 26x for power sailing? The options seem endless!
Is there a boat or family of boats that can be enjoyed fiddling around Cape Cod Bay but that can also handle the rough stuff in Buzzards Bay or Nantucket sound on the voyage to ACK and MV??
Thanks in advance!
