I'm 25 abd I've been planning and getting everything together to go cruising for about five years now, left my job for a career better suited for travel, went back to school, finishing up now and looking at boats. I'd like a pacific seacraft 34, but it's a little more than I want to pay. I'd love to find a good 28 to 32 footer. Even looked at tha Dana 24, but as I'll be living aboard and stopping to work once in a while I like to have a little bigger. I also would like to also be able to take on two or three crew from time to time. I'll have the boat early next year, and be off within a year, doing some coastal rips and the Bahamas in the time being. Good Luck, I'll see ya on the water.
