Re: Coronado 25ft
I owned one for 10 years in and out of San Francisco Bay, lots of rough conditions. There were keel bolts, but I think the keel was encapsulated, could never see a keel/hull seam. We beat it pretty hard with no visible effects anywhere. Pretty good well arrangement.
Although we didn't race, it seemed to be able to keep up with other similar size boats, like Cal 25's. Fair amount of room below. In the summer it was a bit overpowered with the stock sails, and as mentioned, some weather helm in heavy conditions.
Maybe do a search for comparable prices. We paid about $6,000 for a 67 model in 1971. It was in perfect, brand new condition when we bought it.
