My $.02.

Annapolis is great from what my Uncle tells me. He has sailed there for decades.

Stay under 30 feet at this point. Save a ton of money. Build your skills along with your wife. A small family can cruise great in a 27-29ft boat.

FWIW, my folks would spend two weeks with them and 5 grandkids on a Cal 29. Worked out great.

Good luck and thanks for serving.
