Re: I think I have found what I want
The CB weighs around 65 lbs. All fiberglass. The ballast is about 1800lbs of lead epoxied into the keel.
I bought an 80' O'day 25 in Sept. Only got to sail it 5 times before Sandy but it sailed very well, even with the CB stuck in the up position. I paid $3800 for a very basic boat. Furling Jib and Hydraulic OB mount with 9.9hp electric start OB about the only add ons. No ladder, bimini, bilge pumps, one battery, etc but very sound.
This looks well cared for with well thought out add ons.
