Hello Sabreman, thank you for taking time to answer my question. I will check out Worlds Best Sailboats Vol II book later. Sabre holds it value quite well, may because they are well made and not that many around. As now, it is unlikely I am willing to pay for the newer one (2000 and later). Perhaps, late 80's to 90's will be my goal. Unfortunately, not all sailboats are maintained similarly by the owner. It is almost a hit and miss adventure.
I will stop by the Sabre dealer to learn more about their product line this Summer. Thanks again for your time and much appreciated.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
