I can tell you a couple of boats to stay away from. First,there was a recommendation for the Buccaneer. I would definately stay away from these boats. They were not made well and don''t sail well. Thats my opinion.
About 10 years ago I bought a Flying Scot (19''). It is an old design that sails well and is very popular for racing that you can get cheap (under $5000), and they are still made. The thing I didn''t like about the boat is that it is not self bailing and can swamp--can be dangerous.
For the size range you want you of course will be looking primarily at older boats. I recommend you look at what is out there, and when you find one that looks good, go onto sailnet and ask people what they think. Also there are email lists for many sailboats, and you can join the list and ask people their opinion of the boat. Good luck. By the way,your happiest days will be when you buy the boat and when you sell the boat!!! Its true. Rob ~~~~_/)~~~~
