halp finding a boat

thanks for the reply. i''m trying to stay under ~15k preferably under ~10k assuming i will have to buy new sails etc. i want to stay ahead of the whole 168 group (merit 25, j24, capri 25, wavelength 24, etc.) the B-25 would be like a dream boat but too expensive. same for the J/80,J/27 and Laser 28 i''m guessing. do you know of any specific sites that cater primarily to club racing (or boat listings). i would be willing to pay more for a 25 year old moore 24 in perfect shape than say a much newer boat that''s rough so age doesn''t really matter to much to me.
thanks again

You might look for a Tripp 26, Laser 28, B-25, J-27, Plato 25 (Farr 25), Wavelength 25 (Schockwave 25), or Olsen 25. All offer good performance at the lower end of your speed range and in your general Size range.
