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

One thing to keep in mind is that some advice, while technically correct, is based on someone else's sailing priorities. If you want comfort, convenience ... that might be different than what the racers and purists want or consider important. Some people are all about performance, some are artisan restoration nuts, some are readying for trans oceanic adventure, and others want to relax in coastal waters. So much knowledge and experience here. Safety and reliability are the common denominator.
