buying a live a board
I was just where you are. I was living on a Catalina 27, and wanted something a little bigger. I Catalina 30 is a good choice for size, but if you want to cruise in it it could be a little uncomfortable, esspecially in the windy SF bay. I just bought a Dreadnought 32, which is very simular to a Westsail, and I don''t think I could have made a better choice. It depends on what you like, but you will be more comfortable on a heavier boat. Good luck.
