Ready to buy

Dont be afraidof a boat thats a little on the heavy side,they are usually built well.
besides if you are going to live abord , a
light fin keeled boat (especially a small
one) will not sit as well at anchor.
A heavyer boat will give a better motion
in a seaway , will be safer in rough weather and will take a grounding better
because its ballast is fully incapsulated.
Boating is a trade-off.Read some books!
