I'm an experienced sailor currently without a boat looking to charter for weekends and week-long cruises on the Chesapeake Bay. Eventually I would like to buy a boat, but I'd like to let my family...

Best year for 30' Catalina? and why...

I'll toss out another one:

If you could have any Catalina 30, which model year(s) would you want to own and why?

"Lightly used" or "well maintained"

I'll throw this open for discussion and see if there are any takers:

All things being roughly equal--same age (say 1990), model (30-ft Catalina), price (~$25K), location (Chesapeake), etc.--which...
