Re: Looked at the Ranger 26

Hey,

I just don't know. It seems like you could spend $500 cash, a bunch of hours cleaning (never a bad thing anyway) and have a boat you could sail immediately. No, it won't be perfect (or even very nice) but you'll be out there sailing.

Until you own a boat and spend time on the water, sailing, working on boats and learning, you really have NO idea what you need or want.

You may find out that sailing isn't for you. In that case, NO boat is worth it. Or you may find that you love sailing and being on the water and want to spend a lot of $ on a boat. Either way I assure you that your first boat won't be your last.

I bet the outboard engine alone is worth $500.

Good luck,
Barry
