What boat would you guys suggest if I were to try this. I would be interested in a boat between 25-35 feet, which would be a safe, sturdy and easy to sail. What would be the "Toyota Camry" of boats in this size range. I know there will be boats which are faster and better performers, not to mention more expensive. But I am interested in finding what boat is thought of as the "most bang for your buck" with regard to safety, ease of maintenance, and general comfort. I would also be interested in hearing what kind of boats you guys learned on (those of you who learned on bigger boats, 27' and up).
