Wanting to go offshore in 2 yrs - buy right boat now ?
I am planning to go cruising permanently (or at least, semi-permanently) in 3-4 years. I realize it takes some time to outfit a boat....
currently I am without a boat, and have been for the last 5 years. I want to get a boat soon to get back into the swing of things, but I am torn between buying the ''right'' boat for the long term, or getting a coastal cruiser in the short term and then either upgrading it or trading up for a better offshore boat later.
I''m leaning towards getting the ''right boat'' now, but the problem is that it takes soo much time ! The longer I wait, the less I can sail...
can anyone give me some advice ?
