Allied boats are a great idea, but most were ketches, and I'm more in the market for a sloop or cutter.

tommays - thanks for the advice; I see the dangers of the plywood! I'll take a look @ the Catalinas in the sub-30 range, that might be a decent compromise though I'd like a bit more boat than that.

I've gotten a few other suggestions that I'm liking as well, including the Pearson 323, the Bristol 32 or 34, which I'm researching now. A few have suggested Pacific Seacraft boats but they're over budget unfortunately, same story with Cape Dorys.
