Seabreeze, believe it or not, I agree with you entirely.

For some sailing is about the romance of a by-gone era and certainly a knowlegable sailor with a touch of nostaligia might buy a Vanguard, keep her in reasonably sound condition, use her as a daysailer/overnighter and be served well.

Truth be known, when I am too old to handle bigger, performance oriented cruisers any longer, I imagine myself owning a Tartan 27 or Dolphin 24, putting her in sound condition, loving her dearly, and poking back into those shallow, quiet, coastal corners where the deeper draft boats that I have owned for the past 3 decades cannot dare to venture. That is not so different than my thoughts on folks who want to own boats like the Stone Horse or Vanguard.

Geeeez Jeff, when you roll out those "War and Peace" BOOKS of explanations, I, for one, glaze over. "Here we go." "Please, not this one too." "They just want a yes or no." Whatever. Who am I to say. Anyway, you keep opening up like this and I might be convinced there's a real human being in there.

Here is the Vanguard leonem is considering. Add a composting head, paint the formica white and you have an excellent cruiser for the money.
