Re: thoughts on 1971 Yankee Dolphin 24?

Look at the hull shape in the line drawings: DOLPHIN 24 (S&S) sailboat specifications and details on
Nearly identical to the Tartan 27', also designed by S&S: TARTAN 27 sailboat specifications and details on

Tartan 27's smaller sister ship it is and even Jeff_H (resident boat design critic) did not drag it over the coals. Not surprising since Jeff_H also had kind words for the T27 somewhere in the ether here.

The Dolphin 24' (if in good shape) or the T27 would both be good choices in my not so humble opinion. I am a bit biased though.
