New to the community...

Hi all,

I am new to the community and looking for alot of information.

First off, I currently don't own a sail boat. Ive been looking locally, craigslist, online classifieds, etc... Im not sure what type of boat to get. I live in Wisconsin, so there are several local lakes (2-3 hours away) and of course Lake Michigan, so I would be looking at a trailer-sailer, with the ability to spend some overnights.

Second, I will be mostly sailing alone, with the occasional guest or two, so the boat would need to be solo capable, preferably with all rigging run to the helm.

any recomendations on a specific boat? and why?

Thanks

kurt
