1. Get a subscription to Good Old Boat.
2. Look at boats that you can pay cash for. (You want to own the boat, not vice versa.)
3. Don't go too big. Costs vary exponentially with length.
4. Good quality cruising sailboats in ready-to-use condition are available for way less than $60K.
5. Don't buy until your marine surveyor says OK.
