I'd recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips
thread I started, as it will help you determine whether either of these boats is worth going any further with, and save you the cost of a survey on the real lemons.
I would also recommend you save at least 20% of your budget for refitting, upgrading and customizing the boat you end up buying. Unlike cars, most boats need to be specifically customized to best suite the way you will use it and how you will sail it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
