Good for you! And yes, check on what you're getting first, rowing to the dock in a rainstorm on your way to work - or a hot date - isn't the best of options.
But definitely go for it. At age 60, I'm looking back thinking, "wish I'd done that when I was younger."
Reminder to check all through-hulls on whatever boat you get. And recheck. It would suck to come home after a long day to find your "home" sitting on the bottom with the mast sticking up out of the water.
