Yeah. That is way more boat than I need. I wasn't even thinking that big when I started looking online. I learned an important lesson today: search with a MAXIMUM foot size. That seems to weed out most of the junk boats.

So my new search filter is $10k to $17k, 23' to 30' in Florida.

Is that a reasonable search criteria? Can I search lower than $10k and still find good boats on the smaller end of my size range?

I didn't just look at that, I printed it out and formated it into a report/check list to take with me!

I hope my documented follies help out future new buyers... and at least entertains the experienced sailors on board. Thanks for all the input. I really appreciate the guidance.
