Advice on a 12 footer

The boats you mention are rather "wet" and pretty much designed for racing (at least the Laser). A Lido (14'') is a little dryer with a little more room for company & a picnic lunch. Easy to raise centerboard and kick up rudder for easy beaching.I would think you can get a pretty nice one for $1,000 to $1,400, under that and it will probably need a little work, there are a lot of them out there. I have a relative who races Lasers & they can be pricey.
