Sailmachine is on a distinguished road
I guess what I am looking for is a general guide of what to look for in a boat. There are so many boats out there I am just trying to learn as much as I can before I buy. To help define what I am looking for, here is the beginning of my business plan.

Save money for 2 years to buy the boat, in the meantime sail the old macgregor as much as I can. I am also fixing up my house to sell. A large portion of my boat kitty will come from the sale of the house.

Once I have the boat I will live on it in a marina.

Take boat out for weekend sailing trips off the cost of NC.

venture further away from home on longer cruises as time comes available.
