Elizabethan 31

A friend of mine is looking at a boat called an Elizabethan 31. She wanted me to find out more about it for her, but I haven't been able to find out much about them. She's looking at it for use as a liveaboard for when she at grad school, and then for use as a bluewater cruiser after that.

Any idea of what kind of construction these things have... are they cored hulls or decks, etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I found the owner's association web site, but it doesn't really have much information on the boat there.

How do I get that big American flag next to my country to disappear? I don't know how it got there and I don't even live in the U.S. ...

Thanks

I guess that explains part of the problem... there were only about 40 of the Elizabethan 31 sloop built...which means they're a fairly uncommon sailboat.

An Elizabethan 31 is not too common and your tag says you are in New England. Is this the boat in New Hamburg New York by any chance? If it is I looked at buying her before finding my Tartan 34C.
All the best,
