Thanks for any input.
PS:Also if anyone knows..Which were full keel with the mast stepped off of the keel. :-)
Not sure what you mean by stepped off keel; Do you mean the mast sits on the keel or sits on deck?

I am not really answering your questions, just providing examples, all deck stepped masts.
The Carl Alberg designed boats fit your discription;
See yachtworld for a more complete listing
Alberg 30

Non alberg designs

Contessa 26(My personel favorite only becuase I own one)
Small, but with a strong following and a little easier to trailer.

The Contessa Corner - A site for Contessa owners, sailors and dreamers.

Up here in Canada Whitby boat works made a boat called a Whitby folkboat, same hull as the Contessa 26 but with a taller cabin, for more standing head room
