I can't comment on the boat on eBay... it may or may not have been a good deal. The Contessa is a damned good boat You can check out The Contessa Corner - A site for Contessa owners, sailors and dreamers. for more info on them, there is a for sale section if you're interested in costs. Mine is #312.

Can I send pictures or would that be hijacking? Yes to both. I'll PM you.

To keep this on track, one of the boats from the book I mentioned above was a Paul Gartside 22' cutter... it's probably my favourite on those pages.

Here's another pic of a Gartside cutter - he was a local but defected to the east.

Yup, that's the exact boat in the book I believe. The one in the book has a grey hull.
East or West, still "local" to me. :-)

Another design I read about in the book, but have never had the pleasure of seeing in person, 22' Falmouth Cutter The Falmouth Cutter Web Site

this thread has really opened my eyes to a few designs that are very respectable boats. i am currently looking at moving up to a 30 - 35 foot vessel. but remarkably, i might need to be lookin at going down to a 20 foot instead. very informative thread guys. thanks

Coming in as a pocket cruiser at 24-feet is my old Seafarer of 1971 vintage by McCurdy/Rhodes...she needed alot of work and I sold her after a year for about what I paid...700 bucks at a marina auction.

Here's our little girl. These pictures are at the end of last season, all cleaned out. Looking at taking her out on Georgian bay for a week or two this summer.
