Re: What do you wish you had known before buying your first boat?

Now on my 4th sailboat, if it turns out you really like sailing, whatever you buy won't be your last boat. Your needs change as your life changes.

First boat recommendations:
- smaller rather than bigger
- simpler rather than complex
- buy from someone you know or trust, or get help evaluating from same

Then go sailing and you'll learn what you really want, in your next boat
