Re: US Navy Veteran_New to Sailboats_Need your Honest Knowledge and Experience_Thanks
Not to start a keel type discussion - not quite as much fun as guns or anchors of course, but there are lots of suitable boats that are not full-keelers. As I suggested before, you are a long way away from the boat choosing part of the exercise.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
