Re: What to look for in a new boat

We too are looking for our first cruising sailboat for the Great Lakes (Lake Michigan). We are thinking of a 36-38 foot boat. We are looking for advice on what would be a good model to be a good starter boat. Our price range is around $50,000. I've read that a Catalina is a reliable and affordable choice, the "Ford" of cruising sailboats.
