There is a pretty nice older C and C 30' on yachtworld for about 28K, I looked at boat last summer when it was for sale by owner, the boat is very nicely redone, besides being in pretty good shape has lots of goodies included. I suspect this boat is going to make someone really happy.

slightly out of my price range but thanks! I am looking for that steal of the century under 10k boat that needs some work but is ultimately beautiful and sails like a dream.

Let me know if you see one of those!

Anyone know anyone up in bellingham that would take a look at a Cat-27 for me?

Thanks ya'll.

Who knew picking a boat and figuring out loans and moorage was so much work! It's grueling, spending hours on craigslist, yachtworld, sailboatlistings, sailnet, and god knows where else. My eyes are burning and ready to fall out!

The thing that kills me most is how little information and what terrible pictures people put up when they advertise their boats! It's nervewracking!!

This boat gets a little closer to the price range you are in. 1981 San Juan 28 Sailboat

With the San Juans, you get a lot of boat for you money, and they were built here in the Northwest. Best of luck to you! If that is still to much, try and find an SJ24, they can be had for a good price and are fast and fun boats.

Good luck!

Ok I am going to look at two boats on Friday.
A 27' Sun Yacht of which I know very little
and a
28' Islander named Halcyon.... owned by I believe a member of this fine forum. Can anyone vouch for it or point me in the direction of a surveyor in the Tacoma area??

Erik Bentzen is a fine surveyor who works the Puget Sound and the world. He is the real deal. Tell em michael with the Dehler sent you. He has a web page, you can google him. His work saved me a bunch of money. He is btw a very good racer, who loves sailing.

Jake,

I believe you are correct in that the current owner of Halcyon has/is posting on here, altho I do not recall the handle. Sun yachts I am recalling usually getting good reviews, as will Islanders in general. The last weekend in June their is an Islander roundezvous at Port Ludlow. if you need info I can get the whom is putting it on.

We had an Islander 28 for ten years and we really liked that boat. Our kids have a Catalina 27 now. I thought the Islander was more heavily built. Watch for deflection of the floor under the compression post though. There was another Islander 28 owner here within the past six months that was currently addressing that issue with his boat and I had to fix that on our boat.
