Re: Sailboat Quality
I have a Capri 25, that many say is a terrible quality boat (I can see why they might say it mind you, but I dunno any of them are unique to that boat alone)... but, keep in mind, the boat is 30 years old. At 30, I think it's holding up pretty well.
I'll give a +1 to Landgull, get sailing, worry about quality later. Any boat can do well, if it's maintained well.
"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
