Hi ' Well I'm new here to your forum, have read alot of great stories, good info, great opinions.So I would love some of that good advice. My husband and I are looking to buy a 30 min 36ft max sailboat, we are hoping to find something in the southern California area before 2010,so we are giving ourselves some time to look. We have been thinking about a Pearson323,Irwin,morgan outisland,endeavour and even a Catalina. I would love some input on those ideas as Knowledge is dear!! We are looking to sail to cabo, up into the gulf boogie around for awhile. Thanx big.
