First boat help...

There has to be at least ten questions here but I will just say this. You must read everything you can get your hands on.Sailboats have so many different characteritics not to mention the owners,that choices must come from within.I don`t know of anyone who has picked their first boat and stuck with it.People change,their needs change, so educate yourself.I like heavy displacement boats ,many others do not.I like long keels many others do not.I could keep listing the diferrences for days.Oh I almost forgot I also like a boat that gets up and goes like hell for an hour or so .
