Welcome Carol!
We ended up buying a San Juan 28, it's moored at the Port Hadlock Marina and we've been out in her a couple of times already. She's a solid little boat with an inboard diesel. We're pleasantly surprised at how quickly the boat responds, it's a lot of fun to sail. We've even settled on a new name "Troublemaker", the name the boat came with was kind of creepy. It was named after a malevolent cannibalistic spirit or a culture-bound disorder which involves an intense craving for human flesh. Gave us the creeps, so it had to be changed. It may be considered bad luck to change a boat's name, but how much good luck can come from naming a boat after something that feasts on human flesh?
