Being an old shoe kinda guy, I like the Lyle Hess designed Falmouth Cutter 22 and Nor'sea 27, both trailerable but in the 25 to 50 k range. Less expensive are his Balboas and Montgomerys. Seaworthiness tends to have been one of Hess' priorities from what I've heard.

I'm not sure what Dickens are, but I think they may be important and I sure as hell don't want them scared out of me.......Izzy
