Which of these boats

Hi all,

I have a few more boats lined up to look at.

Which of these boats would you say would fit the bill as a part time live aboard/ extended weekender. I am not into racing, but more sailing ability. I do not plan to go out into the ocean too far. Kind of hard not to go into the atlantic where I live. But I am not looking for a bluewater boat, nor am I looking for storage(water, fuel) capacity of that kind. Would be doing alot of single handling.

It would mostly be sailed around the new york area.

These are the boats that I have narrowed it down too.

1972 pearson 26'
1976 perason 26'
1977 s2 26'
1976 pearson 30'
1977 Morgan 24'
1969 columbia 36'
1968 islander 37' (was told it might be going into negotiations by another party) so it might be off the list.

They all have modern equipment, and roller systems. some have autohelms.

Whats everyones opinion on these boats?
