I love Westsails, I sailed quite a bit with a friend on a 32, never the 42, but it's a neat boat - all Westsails are. The sailboat in the movie The Perfect Storm was a Westsail 32, and although the movie lead you to believe the sailboat sank, it didn't - it was found washed up on a lee shore, the owner did some repairs to it, sailed it around to Clearlake TX and eventually sold her.
Just be sure you get a good one - or one that you can fix and outfit within your budget and "handy man" capabilities.
