What can you tell me about Watkins

Hi,

I have decided to start looking at sailboats again, I have sailed most of my life although mostly small craft and it has been years since I have been in the community. My wife and I have decided to start looking at used 28-32 ft
($15,000 to 20,000) sailboats for coastal use ( Northern Chesapeake Bay marinaed) . Condition is number one on our list, however we are also looking at models that provide larger interiors (for their size) so that we can comfortably weekend and take out the occasional guests....Cat 30's have caught our eye, Cal 29's, and most recently a very clean Watkins 30. I dont know a ton about Watkins (or any boat for that matter but even less about watkins)
I found little information about the model online but would like a candid take from those that know much more then myself....would this be a good family boat of decent quality that makes sense for sailing the Chesapeake? What say you?....Thank you for your help and take it easy on the rookie
