Get hold of Practical Sailor''s book: "Practcal Boat Buying", which reviews more than 110 used boats. It points out problem areas in certain designs and things to look for (and things to look out for) in general. IMHO that for a single, a Pearson 30 might be good deal, though a bit tight. In SanD there are likely a good number of Hunters as well. The boats in your price range will be tired, and probably need cosmetic work, but a good one will float you through college. Be sure to get a good surveyor!! Going to college, you don''t want to learn about boats the hard way.
