Re: Start Up Planning and Advice

Welcome to sailnet and welcome to sailing.
Good advice given on chartering. Try it before you buy it. Also get some time on OPB (Other People's Boats) in your own marina/harbour. Many sailors are happy to talk for hours about their boats and are always looking for new crew for daysailing. The more time you get onboard a sailboat, the more likely you are to find that your vision of the ideal boat will change.
Good plan to "ditch the dirt."
