My 2 cents is see for yourself what small trailable boats are hard to find. That could mean that they are easy to maintain, sail good, or last. One of my past boats was a used 1967 Westerly Cirus 22. I sold it in 1983. The guy still has it and sails the Mobjack Bay of the Chesapeake. On the other hand, I found a 22 ft 1989 Catalina that was not sailed and sunk on land. There was no way to bring back since the water had frozen over five winters and cracked the hull. The one I am working on now is a 1976 O'Day 22 shoal, which was dirty, had been sunk by rainwater...but after clean up and mositure testing the hull is still sturdy.
Like said, new boats are nice..but let the other guy spend the boat units at West.
When I go, let it be by boat, with a steady breeze on the Chesapeake with a bottle of 7-up, a bag of ice, a plastic cup, and a box of wine
