No thank you on the Tartan 27. A friend has a Tartan 34, which has a similar centerboard, and he's had mechanical problems with it. I prefer to keep the number of moving parts in the water to a minimum.

As for the budget, I realize that I could spend two or three times as much and have a lot more boats available to me. But why do that when I know there are boats out there that I'll be happy with for under $10k? Especially for a first boat. Besides, if I buy a more expensive first boat, that'll just make my second boat even *more* espensive.
