Another suggestion :

Small Boat Advisor classifieds :

Small Craft Advisor - Classified Ads

I just tried allofcraigs, and searching the Northeast region. Not much right now. You might just have to keep looking. Took a couple of months for me before my Wayfarer popped up. Then be prepared for a road trip.

Thanks for the tips. This forum is a great resource.

To answer a previous question, I am looking for a primary boat - not something to shuttle people to a bigger boat.

I am quite close to Canada, so that is an option that I had not considered. Cragislist, though, is not at all active in Canada.

Our local sailing club uses Bucaneer 18s, Tanzer 16s, and Flying Scots. Would any of these be appropriate? I've been looking and have experienced same frustrations.

Find out what the locals race ( suspect Flying Sidewalks and Lightnings ), go to where they sail, they will invaribly have a bulletin board with boats for sale or just send a note to the fleet captain.


if you were west of the Rockys - I suggest a lido 14

In Canada, search kijiji.

New & used sailboats for sale Ontario. Find; masts, charters, catamarans, sails, sunfish, riggs and more on Kijiji.ca

You're right, craigslist is not as popular up here. We seem to like easy -to -search classified sites with zoomable pictures that aren't trapped in 1995.

Thanks for the help, everyone. I managed to find a Precision 15 that is in excellent condition. It came with a trailer. The boat was sold by a dealer, but the prices were comparable with Craigslist.

I've found dock space on a lake about ten minutes from home, so I've decided to forget trailering and to keep the boat in the water for the summer.
