Good input Winderlust...thanks!

I'm an Orion fan, but my beef is the price. Most seem to be in the $40-50k range, which puts it in competition with the others (W32, Mariah, Baba 30, V32). If the Orion were in the $25-$30k range, it would be a real bargin over the others and make a lot of sense.

A few others I consider comparable to the Orion (at least in terms of size and seaworthiness) are the Shannon 28, Westsail 28, and Island Packet 27. A few others may qualify too (Southern Cross 28, Cape Dory 28), but I think they are just a step below.

I guess in the end it will come down to budget and getting the most boat for the money if I can put esthetics aside just a bit.
