dogsailors is an unknown quantity at this point
willyknuckle I am sure that the san juans could keep you busy for some time, make your focus smaller to begin with so that you can get a better grasp on what exactly you want to look for in a larger boat as well as the bare nessisities you will need.As far as ssmall boats go anyone who sailed around the world in a boat under 26 feet bought it brand new. Cal also made the 29-9 which a gentleman just recently sailed around the world in I believe it was a 60s model. Check out ready for sea by Tor Pinney. It has a great bare minimum list.I know for a fact you can buy a cal 34 for $10,000 bucks and some would dare to say take it anywhere.

you could always fly out to the east coast buy any old boat and take it to mexico via the intercoastal waterway. we used to sail a san juan 21 that i picked up for $2000 everywhere in the ditch, it runs from the hudson river to mex. and key west is on the way.

Willy...I think you need a better sea boat...like the cape dory's...not necessarily bigger...for the trip you are planning. Unlike the East Coast there is nowhere to duck in on your section of coast when the weather gets nasty AND you will be battling currents against you.
Another thought is to buy your boat in CAL and avoid the worst of the trip that way...get used to the boat at sea on the way to Mex and then make your "ocean" decisions from there. It is easier sailing TO oregon than from Oregon!

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
If there are any Alberg 22's around your area they are decent sea boats that are not too expensive...
