Re: boat ownership on the horizon
Tanzers and C&Cs both have good reputations in that size/era.. for me the C&Cs are hands down the prettier boats. A well sailed T26 goes pretty well upwind too, though.
Imbalances like those your describe is most often a result of really bad sail trim or a poorly set up rig - both of which are addressable and correctable most of the time.
