Re: Second boat suggestions?

When searching for our first boat, I saw an S2 6.8 22' and LOVED that boat. I couldn't get the seller down to my price, so I had to walk away. I also saw a 9.8A that was for sale in the early part of the season, and it was BEAUTIFUL. I've thought those would be great boats for us. The 9.8C, and the Seidelman 28, are both interesting and tempting. There's one for sale in central NJ that I've been tempted to go see. I like the idea of a center cockpit for a lot of reasons, though I'm not sure I want that much freeboard when trying to dock in wind (our C25 got blown around a bit, and this seems like it would be worse). But the cabin looks like it would be a lot of fun for my family.

I'll have to keep an eye out for the Islanders; I haven't given them much thought.

Thanks for the great feedback!
