I'd point out that most of the electronics, unless they're brand new, aren't really contributing much to the value of a boat. I'd recommend you get something trailerable with the trailer, as that can greatly reduce storage costs and makes doing work on your boat a lot simpler—even if you opt to keep the boat in a slip or on a mooring for the season.

I'd also recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started, as it will help you determine whether any of the boats you look at are even worth going forward on, saving you the price of a survey on boats that aren't worth looking at further.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
