Re: Would like some more info.

Your first boat is not going to be the perfect boat. Don't kill yourself trying to find it.

It is more important that you get a boat that generally fits what you want to do. All the boats mentioned would be fine coastal cruisers. Buy the boat that is in the best overall condition for a fair price and you cannot go wrong.

None of those boats will be more fun than the others for a first boat.

If you want to see some up close and personal then you need to do some work. Research the local marinas and yacht clubs. Check out online forums and track down local owners. Many are happy to show you their boat and may even take you for a sail.
