best places to find boats

What do you think are the best three (3) websites you have used to find used boats? I am looking for an Morgan OI 33

I know about Yachtworld and Texas Sailing. Any others that I can look that cover USA east of the Mississippi?

I believe most established brokers list on Yachtworld. All the brokers in this area have all their listings on Yachtworld for certain. Yachtworld is worldwide and you can search by state or area.
Craig's List Kiiji and Ebay list boats as well.

yachtworld, craigslist, sailboatlistings.com is what I use the most. Although sailboatlistings may just be a search engine for other websites.

When looking for a specific manufacturer, there are often user groups that have classified pages. You can sometimes post a wanted ad, rather than solely rely on listings.

Points East and Soundings magazines have boat listings and are based on the east coast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I searched on Yahoo with the words: morgan 33 sailboat for sale. I got 30 hits for the IO sailboat you are looking for. I did not search on IO because there are several ways for listing this in an advertisement. I am having more hits for sailboats with Yahoo than Google for some reason.
