Red face Looking for a First Boat

I agree with the previous post... I would highly recommend the Ranger 26. Easy
to single-hand; very stout built boat and much better quality over a Catalina. Look around and you will find them around $7K or so on either coast. Plus, it is fast and responsive for a novice. And if you like to learn to sail fast >>> buy a Ranger 26.
