The Lido--far and away.

Lido 14 or Rebel 16?
I've been looking for a decent sailboat for some time now, and after a recent trip to Cape Cod, my wife is ready and willing to take the plunge.
We are a family of four. My children are 12 and 6. We are looking for a small, trailerable boat for small jaunts in protected waters. This is definitely a starter boat and won't see much action.
I have a line on a Lido 14 and a Rebel 16 that are within my budget. The 16 is about $100 more than the 14, but needs minor repairs including a crack in the hull. The Lido 14 is closer and is sail-ready today.
