I created this spreadsheet with comparative analysis data for sailboats which I used to evaluate what my next sailboat will be.  Right now I have decided on a First 38, old, but in good condition.  If you read the book "Proving Grounds" you would be impressed to know a First 38 made a good showing in that race (and remained right-side up)

Here is a brochure on my next boat, the First 38.

Our sailboat, Liberty, is on a mooring bouy in Burnham Harbor, Chicago, IL.  We have had some challenges with lines to the bouy being chaffed or twisted, but this hardware really helped out - highly recommended if you are on a mooring.
