Thank you Poopdeckpappy. I read a poll on sail.net and it totally changed my outlook on the age of the boat I want. Originally I was looking for a boat no older than 10 years, but the price was too high. Over 80% of the people who voted owned boats from 16-20 years old. I've since started looking at older, more affordable boats, which has brought my dreams closer to reality. I currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I'm fairly certain that I'll be able to sail the sound for a long time before seeing everything. I'd like my first boat to be my only boat, meaning blue water capable. Right now, I'd settle for anything reliable enough just to get me started.
