I'll be there
I'll be there in the early afternoon. My sailboat is on the hard there and I am finishing up the bottom getting ready to launch. My boat is a Santana 35 - copper bottom (for another day), white and blue topsides.

There are a couple of small sailboats listed for sale in the marina at Quantico, if you have the credentials to get on the base. I can't remember the specifics on them - I'll check the board when I am down there this weekend.

Of course I am partial, but look at the Pearson 26's
You are apt to find one in your price range. They sail great, good room down below for a 26 ft.
For info on the boat I have attached a link.
Pyxis - Pearson 26

Got some sage advice on trying out different models before I buy, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem, I’m lucky enough to have a choice of about 5 marinas within driving distance.
I did see a couple of boats down by the Deltaville area. Right now I’m exploring and researching as much as possible. I do like the lines of the Sailmaster at Deal MD; of course I haven’t seen her in person. I should be up that way next weekend. I found out I can’t take to much stock in pictures posted on the net.

I have an 1983 Catalina 22 than I used to sail on the Potomac, however now her home port is now on the Rhode River just off the Chessy. I looked and found a Catalina for sale at Washington Sailing Marina, however the one I ended up buying was down in Deltaville. I would expand your search more out towards the Chessy (I once even went up to Havre de Grace to look at a Hinterhoeller Shark 24) as it looks like you are in the market and location for a trailer sailer.
I would highly recommend the Catalina 22 or 25 for you as they are a great production boat, have a great following, and parts are easy to find all at one website (www.catalinadirect.com).
