Re: Second boat suggestions?

Sorry to hear that your C 25 was totaled by Sandy.

Have you considered sailing on the Delaware River/Bay?

I wont add any more boats to your list. I can only comment on winged keel boats which can be notoriously difficult to get un-stuck if you ground them.
I was on an O'Day 272 on LI Sound not long ago and we ran aground on a falling tide (8' tidal range) and could not get off. Well, the tide ran out, all the way out, leaving the boat standing high and dry with the winged keel on the relatively flat sandy beach. Hours later the water came back and we motored off.
