thoughts on used 31-35 foot options?
I am looking to purchase a used 31 to 35 foot sloop, having recently sold the Catalina 25 I had for many years and much enjoyed. I am looking to spend less that $40k, and hoping to find a relatively recent ('98 to 2002) used boat. The Hunters and Catalina's seem most attractive and available, but I am open to other options that might be available in that price range. The Hunters seems to have especially attractive interiors but I am unsure about how they sail. I'd welcome insights on the seaworthiness, performance, comfortability of the various Hunters v Catalinas verses Pearsons or whatever else may be out there.
