yankee/tartan

I am looking for my third boat; and second cruising boat (in california).

in 92' i seriously looked at buying a Yankee 30, just because of their legendary sailing ability. instead, i convinced myself that i needed a bigger boat and went that route.

back on track again, i would like to go with a simpler boat, a smaller boat and have a yankee, but its not always easy to find a decent one. tartans i know little about, though many were made, but some posters are noting similarities of the tartan to the yankee. the forums have little in the way of comparison between the two, other than noting that there is a similarity.

if i found a tartan in decent condition, take it, or keep searching for a yankee?
