buying first boat

Ahoy Jerry,

My first sailboat is a 35 footer, and she is quite a handful as a learning platform. Much higher loads and inertia compared to something 8 or 10 feet shorter. If I was to do it again, I''d be in the 25-30'' range. Especially if I was singlehanding, with only myself to accomodate.
