You are correct that there are not a lot of sailboats to be found in the middle part of the country. A lot of them are close to being past there point of usefulness without a lot of work being done. On the other hand there is not a big market to sell into either. Don't get overanxious in trying to buy one. A nice one will come up with no problems, then you can wait the guy out and throw in a low ball price and have the boat you want. But you do have to have patience. Which I understand is a hard thing to do in the middle of summer that you know will be over before you know it.
always in decline-never hitting bottom

Ronjh My Catalina is also a 79; sail number 1478. She sails Lake St Clair in Michigan. Itís a standard rig with a swing keel. And yes there a very fine boat.
