OKCUBye is on a distinguished road
i have a 1972 Morgan 30/2...absolutely LOVE it. Sails circles around everything in my marina, if you can balance the spinnaker just right (which i often do), i can sail it without the tiller pilot, and it maintains a straight line. i like the boat so much that i've put about $20K into it over the last 5 years. People tell me i'm nuts, but i'm not ever intending on selling, and i've never been in anything in the size range that's better or more reliable. That 11'6" beam gives loads of room below, too! Sorry to disagree with other postings here, but i've sailed on all of your choices, and i'd buy the Morgan over the others, and take the difference between the prices and put it back into the Morgan...you'll end up with a better boat (IMHO)...
