New to it all!

Ive always wanted a sailboat, just never really thought I'd be able to have one for a long time but I decided you only live once right? Might as well enjoy life as much as possible!!

Got my hands on a Balboa 24, decent shape, needs a little work and some love but I'm more than happy to oblige. Seems like the bug bit me hard because I can't stop looking and gear and tossing it on a "to-do" list. I'll post pictures soon, just getting it prepped to be put into the water.

Also as a question, how smart would it be to put money into the boat? Is it better to just enjoy it and save money for a newer/bigger boat? I had plans to have the interior redone after the summer season and make it a little more my own. This board is filled with great information! Thanks!
