SD- Thanks for the Reply, I will check out the Westerly Nomad, although i really want a multihull .
By "30k ready to go" i meant mostly sailing the bay, and lakes for the first 2 seasons or so while learning the boat. I know more will have to be spent in order for longer trips to become a reality, but was under the impression 30k could purchase an older used C-24 ready daysailer/weekender.
Of course now i am wondering if it would be a mistake to spend 30k in the next 2yrs., and if instead i should wait longer (6-7yrs) to get something bigger (60k or so), and just stick to Hobie's for a few more years.

I think 2 yrs. will come sooner than i think, school will be done and I will be back in Houston. I want to narrow my list a bit, and bring it closer to reality. Maybee i need to re-add monohull trailer sailors to my list, I had taken them off since i am sold on multihulls.
I reasearched Farrier Tramp/Eagle, there were 3 on the market at just 7-10k, but i wanted a bit more boat than they seemed to offer. Maybe i should re-add them as my initial(2yr) boat as well.

Anyways thanks for the posts- If anyone else has anything else to add it would be appreciated
