$3200 and not sure what to buy?????
I am very impressed with the Mirage 236 as well. I have a friend at our club who has one and we sail it regularly. If you can find one it''s a great choice.
Another idea for you is the Seafarer 22 or 23, normally they sell for a little more than your budget, but right now there is one on Yachtworld that is within your budget and it''s supposed to be in good shape. I had one of these a few years ago and i could kick myself for selling it. These boats are very stable, well mannered under sail, shallow draft, they are gorgeous to look at and have a very comfortable motion.
