No offense, bmac, but if you are "over" working on engines, if you don't like contorting yourself to fit around an engine, if the smell of gas or diesel makes you ill, if you want a rebuilt engine "for a song"... then maybe you should consider joining a sailing club, and sailing daysailers.

If you are going to sail cheap, you are going to have to work on engines, and you are going to have to get dirty.

A solid Tartan 30 with a decent running powerplant is a much netter deal than a bigger Hunter with a dead heart.

Or, here's a compromise for you. Smaller than the 36, bigger than the Tartan. This one could probably go home with somebody for about $16-17K US:
