Re: thoughts on 1971 Yankee Dolphin 24?
A friend had one of these a number of years back. I remember it as a solid boat, decent sailor, with not a lot of space below. The Pearson 26 I had at the time was a palace below compared to the Dolphin.
You haven't looked at any boats yet. Look at a few to get an idea of what you like and don't like.
