Thank you for all the input.

After considering all the advice and running some quick numbers, I am going to buy something and refit as necessary. Cheaper and much better resale value.

I am going to get something on the smaller side, Contessa 26, Cape Dory 25D/26, Columbia 26, Morris Frances 26 (probably too expensive) etc... Instead of purchasing a 28/30' boat I think I would prefer to save the money and use it for refit/cruising instead.

Hopefully I can get a trailer or have one modified to work so I can tow the boat home after purchase for the refit.

Maybe a Cape Dory 28/Southern Cross 28 if I find the right deal but I don't think I could get something that big back to the house.
