Ohhhhh, what I could do with a $10K budget.

Where are you located?

I think either a Catalina 27 or C&C 26 with a wheel is going to be an Edison (or other) wheel conversion- the parts may be good, the execution often not so much. Keep looking. I like orphan boats (manufacturers who have gone Tango Uniform) but don't like orphan engines. Look for the best combination of parts you can afford- in fact look for boats advertised 20% higher than your budget then utter the word "cash" frequently while "cash" negotiating "cash" from a "cash" starting point "cash" 40% below the "cash" asking price "cash". Then point-blank tell the seller "Did I mention I am paying cash?" while fanning a stack of Benjamins.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
