Re: Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

Assuming they are in reasonably similar condition, buy the one that gladdens your heart more. Both boats are known to be good quality and they are similar sizes so the "lightness" factor isn't really a factor.

Sailboats are essentially an emotion purchase - there isn't a whole lot of logic in owning one.

Edit: The Sabre is about 1/2 minute a mile faster by PHRF rating - that's a lot for two 30 footers.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
