Comparing boats 37''''-38''''

I sailed a 1983 Sabre 38 c/b on the Bay and in southern New England for 18 years. Truly a fine boat--fast, seaworthy, fun to sail, and very well built. There are a few on the market.

What would you buy for $100,000?

Pity that no one has mentioned a Mark 1 Sabre 38. If you know this boat you will know how big the oversight! Good luck. What a trove of valuable information has been accumulated! Jack
