buying first boat
JohnDrake, TSenator, and everyone who contributed, thanks for the great advise!! Im not sure what long term plans I have but I hope they will include some blue water sails. For now, though, I will stay close to the coast and build my confidence. I will take your advise with me for my search for the boat. I like the look of the Catalina but need to do some more research. I also welcome more opinions , so keep em coming!!
