Re: Advice please - 30' Rawson Sloop

I am buying one of these, first because of the price. Second because it has a full keel. When I step aboard I want a boat that does not lean toward me. This one pasts the test. The rig is a bit light compared to other boats but the one I am looking at has a good strong engine and a 3/8 chain road. She will duck and dive and maybe slid off the face but this boat meets my needs for SF bay, some delta and if need be a fair boat for the open. It's about good storage fair sailing and a comfort. I'm not thinking like the wanderlust I was. No major transits or big crossing for me. No tons of bright work for vanity's sake or courses where you squeeze around the marker. I see this boat as a plan old family station wagon. For now with my son home and my wife spending time aboard, it's enough.
