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

I didn't really buy my first but as much as traded for it but it needed alot to get it ready to sail, while I had to buy a parts boat and build a trailer I had time to learn so much by just reading. It took buying 4 boats before I understand that bigger is not always better depending on how you are going to use the boat. My Chrysler 22 was great for doing weekend outtings , real fun to sail with very little expense. the Chrysler 26 was real nice for longer outtings and would be as big as I would have ever needed if I didn't decide I wanted to become a full time liveaboard cruiser.

Endeavour E-32 "Samara"

I am the Capt of my ship but sometimes I think I had more fun just being the cabin boy.
