How''''s this boat sound for the money???
Even from my neophyte perspective, I believe the advice above is right on. In the short time since my love for sailing was rekindled, I have already had many of my initial "dreamboats" figuratively scuttled in the sea of reality.
You were very wise to seek counsel on this one. The search for the right boat for you and Jessica may take longer than you like, but hopefully you''ll be rewarded. Good hunting!
