lizardheadone is on a distinguished road
Hunter or Contest? Contest. Here is a list I would look hard at if trying to pick up a blue water capable boat on a budget: Cal 2-30 and 34, Alberg 30 and 35, Cape Dorys, Allieds, Bayfields, Contessa 26, Pearson Triton, and Albin Vega 27. I guess you know that all boats in the 10K range will need a large investment in upgrades and refit unless you are one lucky fellow. I am refitting a Hallberg Rassy Rasmus 35 and will spend 6 times my purchase price to get it ready for cruising. Good luck.
