Don't know much about sailing, had a hobie 16 and a catalina 22 in the past, but am at a point in my life where I'd like to get back into the hobby. No interest in racing at all, just want to keep a sailboat on my mooring and take it out a few nights a week for a spin with friends and family. A family friend has a j24 that they're casually selling, he was big into racing and I believe kept the boat in really great shape and has nice sails, etc. It comes with a trailer in good shape and an older, running 4HP outboard to get on and off the dock. His price is $2k, which seems more than reasonable. My question for you all is whether the J24 would be a good boat for this use? The catalina 22 had a roller furling and tiller pilot which were nice creature comforts, but certainly not deal breakers. I know some here will say get something else meant for cruising, but frankly I don't see much on CL for around that price that are anywhere near as nice as this boat, plus I know this boat's history. So what do you all think? Thanks!
