We had a coronado 15 growing up. The C15 is a fun boat and as your boys get older they may appreciate a boat that rips. A Lido 14 is more manageable with way less sail and it has a stepped seat, so you don't sit on the rail. I would go with a C15 or newer Capri 14. I think it might be a fun boat to grow into. As mentioned O'day is another option and may be easier to come by in your area. The boats I mentioned are popular California boats. Try to by a popular club race boat if you can. That should help with resale. Just go to the lake and see what they racing. At our marina they race sabots, lasers, lidos, and fj's.
