From a different point of view...

I bought a CD-25 last year on a whim. (Nobody here has EVER bought a boat on a whim...right?) Initially, I was excited about the boat. I grew up sailing, and was looking forward to showing my boys (2 and 4) about sailing. I quickly learned this isn't a "family" boat like I'd thought. At least for MY family...2 small kids running around in a small cabin = recipe for disaster. I also have learned that I kinda despise an outboard motor.

I'm out looking for something a little bigger now. (Something like a J30) I grew up racing, so it's a little slow for me. If you are in the Cleveland area, I'd love to take you out for a spin.

They are really neat boats. Solid as the day is long. Quality built boats from top-to-bottom. There are some deals out there on them too. Search Google for Cape Dory Forums, and you'll find the guys that you need to talk to about them.
