In the almost 2 years since the original post, I've become a huge PSC fan. I could realistically see an Orion, Mariah or the newer 31 being my next boat.

Lately I've been sizing up salty bluewater cruiser in the ~30' range that can be had for around $50k. The boats that have floated to the top of my list are the Mariah, Westsail 32, Valiant 32, and Baba 30. I'm quite sure I'd be happy with any of the four and I can't seem to pick a front runner. The Baba is soooo pretty. The Westsail is soooo stout. The Valiant has a more modern hull/keel and supposedly sails the best. The Mariah seems to be a good combination of the other four, though I think it most closely resembles the W32.
