I spent 4 seasons sailing a J-105 and liked the sailing charateristics immensely. Staying aboard was a lot like camping in a pup tent.

Wow, that Herreshoff IS gorgeous! Thanks for the link.

With a full keel boat like that, I'm guessing that one has to carefully plan close quarters maneuvers, as they're impossible to pivot/have a big turning radius?

The old pearsons are great boats, but not really on the same level as an alerion. If you are willing to go higher in length, and higher in price, the hinckley pilits are beautiful and very comfortable, but are suprisingly easy to handle. You also might want to try the alberg 35 or the bristol 35 which are comprable in terms of beauty, but are significantly less in price.

New Boat

Some of the early/mid-70's Sparkman and Stephens designs look good and sail well. The Yankee 30, Tartan 30, Tartan 37, Tartan 41...all good looking boats, well built and good sailboats.

What about the Ensign? It sure appears gorgeous. Too slow, though?

The Harbor 25 built by WD Schock is a day sailor with classic lines and modern underbody - has a private head, plus some other features the A28 doesn't have.
