Sounds like you're a "keep it simple" kind of guy, which is a good way to be with your first cruiseable (?) boat. Where you plan of keeping her? Mississippi Sound has some excellent cruising, though a few shoal spots too so watch the buoys. When you're feeling adventurous you can go "outside" through one of the Passes.

Get your safety gear, a Danforth anchor, a compass, some binoculars, and a portable VHF radio. Your basic alcohol stove is fine for overnighters, so's a block of ice. Buy used when you can, there's a lot of salvaged anchors and stoves around off the wrecked boats.

you'll have more fun than most of those guys on the ''gold-platers".

Best wishes.
