funjohnson is on a distinguished road
26 and bought my first sailboat last August (first time sailing was on my own boat), a 1998 Hunter 240. I wanted to get my feet wet in a boat I knew wouldn't break me financially. Now I want to move up to a 30-34' and leave with the wife for a life down south, but I'm not yet salty enough to take on that challenge. I figure I will get the larger boat next spring and leave the following year. Hopefully I have gained enough skill by then to not kill the two of us!
