Hi guys and gals -

My name is Kyle and am new to sailing. I signed up for sailing lessons from an ASA school in the Fort Worth, TX area. I am considering purchasing my own boat instead of relying on renting a boat once I have finished the lessons. I have ordered a few books through Amazon about selecting the proper boat, but greatly welcome any suggestions. I will be sailing on a large local lake, spending some weekends aboard maybe in the spring and fall, and will be cruising as I am not interested in learning to race at this point.

I am considering a 25' catalina that is for sale locally.

Any thoughts, suggestions, constructive criticism are appreciated!
