I owned a P26 for two years in the early 90s and it was a great boat - sturdy and well-designed with a good turn of speed. Great for your intended uses, although I would be careful about coastal cruising with it given its age. I sailed round Delmarva in it in 1993 over the course of 9 days, with overnights in Gibson's Island, Chesapeake City, Cape May, Ocean City, MD, Cape Charles, and Reedville.
