You are not wrong, FS owners made a good decision that sticks with them a lifetime so they don't usually sell their boats or when they do, they usually sell more quickly right at the club!!

Can't speak for your locale but in the West the Lido 14 has been the primary sail training boat for 40-50 years (I even had one when young) available in all prices and vintages. Easily towed, beachable, lots of parts available and there are racing fleets in a lot of places so you can continue to enjoy it after you learn the basics. My neighbor has an O'day and they are similar.

We had 4 adults in a West Wight Potter 15 for a daysail, Sailed well, was very stable and it should be easy to find one for <3k.

Thank all of you who have posted. I will be doing more research on the different boats that you have mentioned. I will have to see if I can find some people to join here in Charlotte to get my feet wet with.
Thanks,
