Thanks all
The main reason that I am thinking to buy a boat now and do nothing with it , but pay for storage till next season, is that i am guessing that now is the time that I can get a good deal.
I don't know if at the end the total (boat cost+ storage) will be greater then th cost of the boat if I was to wait till spring to buy one.
If I wait till spring then it will not be till like mid summer that I can sail it.

So say for a 27' moderate displacement boat, what would be the least amount oh horse power to be able to sail at hull speed?

I am looking at a 87 hunter 23' that comes with 5 hp outboard and a trailer. What do u think that's worth?
The turn off is that there no toiliet (for lack of a better term) in it and it does look small inside.
