    I've not a lot of info about the Gulf Island 29, only to say that I saw
one a couple years back in Nanaimo and was impressed.
    The owner (from Vancouver) gave us a tour--  really similar layout,
though there were some things I liked more about his boat-- it seemed of
more sturdy construction (this is an impression)...  I recall the toe rails
were a bit higher than A-30s, which seemed useful for ocean sailing.
    I'd go for it if it checks out and the price is right.
    Plus, there may be an advantage buying in Canada (the exchange rate),
but what about taxes and duties when bringing it to the US and registering?
I don't know.
