Meh. Go for it (if you have the spare change). You'll learn something, you'll cool off.

I have a 30' boat two hours away and I'm always thinking about buying a small Sunfish-type boat to use on a nearby lake when I can't get down to the marina.

Also consider joining a local sail club to get experience on larger boats. Find the right one and it'll cost you less than a dinner out.
