Hi BTK111, welcome to Sailnet. As tschmidty mentioned, it would help to have some information about your sailing area and the way in which you intend to use the boat (daysailing, racing, overnights/weekends, etc.). This way, we might be able to provide some recommendations potentially on other makes/models of boats you haven't thought of.

I don't think any of us can really determine the condition of the boat you're describing specifically without seeing it, but I will say this: I used to teach sailing, and I firmly believe in simplicity for beginning sailors. I also believe that a boat in good condition is the best place to start. As a beginning sailor, you need time on the water, not in your backyard fixing your boat. If the boat is simple to operate and in good condition, you're most likely to use it! That's all just my opinion, of course. Good luck in your search!
