Since you have a specific boat in mind, that changes things a bit... and yes, getting one from the east coast or the great lakes would probably make more sense. Be aware that there have been some build problems with the recent Tartans that you may or may not know about. I don't know whether this will affect the boats you're looking at, but you should at least be aware of it. Read about the issue here.

Also, the keels on the recent Tartans are modular, and from what I understand can be exchanged from a shoal draft to a deeper fin or fin/centerboard, and back as needed, which may be something to consider as well.

What is your timeframe and budget roughly???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
