Help…Logistics of Moving Aboard!

Sound advice Bob thanks.

As far as experience goes I''ve only about 2 years sailing experience on Lake Pleasant here in Arizona. I have a 25 ft. Venture trailer sailer.

I figured once I had a boat I''d get an instructor to show me how to sail it offshore or in coastal waters. Rather than use one of the sailing schools and their boats, I''d prefer to learn on the actual boat I''m going to be sailing.

I''ve been cruising the brokers online and have decided what I need in a boat - accomodations, electronics, etc. I''m a little scared of starting the purchase procedure via the internet. Buying something that big, site unseen... I''ve seen some boats for sale online for a long time - what''s wrong with them that they haven''t sold?

This is definitely something I want to do but I am a little intimidated by it all.
