Re: Yankee 30
I will second that with one Caveat. Yankee's are great boats with a great history and most are still sailing. Not just the 30, but the 24 Dolphin, 24 Sea Horse, 26, 28, 30 and 38. Sea Horse, 26 and 28 are Finch Designs. Dolphin, 30 and 38 are SS Designs. 30 and 38 went to Catalina. Dolphin went back to Oday as I recall and not sure where the Finch boats went to, but Islander, et all are about the same, but not near the quality of the YYs. The Catalina 30 and 38 are based off of the Yankee's.
All the Yankees I have seen in the past few years have glass that is still in really good shape for 40 years.
