+1 to what Paul said.
We bought our 1st boat in Nov. Got one sail in it before winter kicked in. Then the more I looked at it the more overwhelmed I got. In the spring these guys set me straight. Go sailing and have fun. Don't invest in too much the first year. Well, we did have fun. So much so that in less than a year we bought a bigger boat that better suited our needs. We also kept it simple w outboard, PP and minimal other mechanics. That can all come later.
