Thanks for the help, everyone. I managed to find a Precision 15 that is in excellent condition. It came with a trailer. The boat was sold by a dealer, but the prices were comparable with Craigslist.
I've found dock space on a lake about ten minutes from home, so I've decided to forget trailering and to keep the boat in the water for the summer.

You're right, craigslist is not as popular up here. We seem to like easy -to -search classified sites with zoomable pictures that aren't trapped in 1995.

Find out what the locals race ( suspect Flying Sidewalks and Lightnings ), go to where they sail, they will invaribly have a bulletin board with boats for sale or just send a note to the fleet captain.
if you were west of the Rockys - I suggest a lido 14

Thanks for the tips. This forum is a great resource.
To answer a previous question, I am looking for a primary boat - not something to shuttle people to a bigger boat.
I am quite close to Canada, so that is an option that I had not considered. Cragislist, though, is not at all active in Canada.

I just tried allofcraigs, and searching the Northeast region. Not much right now. You might just have to keep looking. Took a couple of months for me before my Wayfarer popped up. Then be prepared for a road trip.

|puddinlegs||Look at active one design fleets in your area. Almost all 1D fleets have web sites with buy/sell sections. Are there Lightnings around? Trailerable, sails well, fun... should be able to find one at a decent price.|

kilarney are you looking for a small boat or are you looking for an auxiliary? i.e do you want to sail with 4 people or do you want to move 4 people from a bigger boat to shore?
You might be better of with looking "By Name", pick a model such as the Wayfarer mentioned above and search by name/model.

Have you considered a Wayfarer? You sometimes get some for sale in the US at the US Wayfarer site, but that site is practically dead. The Canadian site has much more traffic and more for sale. There's also the CL16 which is basically the same boat.
A Wayfarer is a much better boat than any of the Catalina, Hunter, and Vanguards in the same size.
I found my Wayfarer by using one of the external "search all Craigslist" sites, with say a 500 mile radius.
Wayfarers for sale

You might try local dealers for Catalina, Hunter and Vanguard/ actually Laser Performance. They may have access to used models of the smaller ones they sell. Or a new one for that matter.
Locally a few YC's use C16.2's for lessons, some of the LP boats too.
I am sure it is the case for YCs Where you are.
