Thanks for the input guys. Trailering an oversize boat doesn't really bother me, I've hauled my cruiser around the Southeast for the last 3 years and it's right at 9'6" and 8100 lbs., but maybe I didn't phrase my request properly. I don't want an oversize sailboat, 8'+ would suit me just fine, it's just that I don't want to go narrower than 8'.
QuickMick, I looked at a Balboa 26, but I couldn't really find much about it when I tried to research the boat. Anyone know what they are like?
I also looked at a Ranger 26, but it had been pretty well stripped down and used as a racer. Again, I couldn't find much when I tried to research the boat. I'm not looking for a racer, just a decent cruising boat for the admiral and me.
I have found several trailerable boats that looked good and had a good background, but in most cases the owner sold the trailer. By the time I purchased the boat and then added a trailer, it would have gone way over the budget.
I know everyone has their favorite boat, so maybe I should ask...What boats do you feel I should stay away from and why?
Again, thanks for the input.
