The C&C owner sent me a couple of photos, and I've seen it in the flesh (from underneath anyway) too. It's been sat over winter and the owner is there over the next few days de-winterising it and giving it a lick of paint so hopefully will brush up nicely. It's certainly at the top end of the budget (not that there's a set budget as such) so wouldn't be anything in the kitty short-term, but then it's my first boat and don't really have any plans to upgrade it so as long as it's solid then it's fine.
The Cal is certainly going to be the cheapest to buy and run, I'm just worried that I'll outgrow it too quickly and next season will already be looking to replace it. Could happen with any boat though I guess. The Gramp, well, she isn't pretty. but they have good reputations for build quality and it looks like the owner has taken good care of it.
The Edel looks OK in the flesh, price is out of the budget at the moment, but then it is absolutely loaded with new or almost new kit.
Ideally I'd like something like a Tanzer 22, built like a tank, good below decks and a massive cockpit (which is where I'd be spending most of the time anyway), but there's none for sale round here.
Oh I don't know, will probably end up having to spend the money on something else anyway but a man can dream.
Of course this is all mostly as a result of the skipper of the race boat having a change of plans/lifestyle so no longer going out on it. I'm forgetting what water is like!
