There are just so many boats out there that can do the job that you need. It is hard to know where to start but here are some names that come to mind, Oday, erricson, catalina, cal, laguna balboa,clipper marine, montgomery. Any boat that can lake sail safely should be fine coastaly cruising the sea of cortez. I would start looking around the Ranchitos, and all the dry storage facilities in San Carlos. I have seen several sailboats on trailers that look like the owners wont be using again.

Look for something in your budget and if you find it here in San Carlos give me a buzz and I can go take a look at it with you and let you know what I think. More than likely you will be looking for a sloop rigged monohull that I would consider modifying into a cutterl. I would put the staysail on a snap shackel so is is removable for light wind tacking of the Genoa.

good luck there are lots of boats out there, I am sure one has your name on it.
