I lived in Sarasota in the mid 1970''s. At that time the San Juan 21 was a very popular one design class in Sarasota Bay. I sailed on one a couple times and thought they sailed quite well and were reasonably well built for a trailerable of that era. There still seemed to be a pretty big fleet at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron last spring. The nice thing about having a local one design class is that you can get advice on how to sail them well.

Another nice little trailerable boat that should be common in your area is the Morgan 22.

Now then, all of these boats are 20-30 years old and were lightly built to begin with. No matter how cheap the boat is and no matter what anyone tells you, if you are not extremely experienced in boat construction get the boat surveyed. Problems in older boats can often cost far in excess of the value of the boat to repair and without care you could end up with a worthless pile of fiberglass.

Good luck
