dammit I love a response like that. Thanks bubblehead!

I've ripped my grandparents sunfish around for 20 years. Not on the ocean tho. Got some really good memories on it, and some good experience I guess. Really not that hard to get going on one of those things.

A lot of people have been telling me to start with a 22' footer, but I couldn't imagine being on something smaller than a 25'. A 30' would be ideal. I also love working with my hands, and I have good technical skills, so I think I could take care of 3/4 of the maintenance.

I've only sailed on larger boats a couple of times. I figure if I take some lessons on bigger boats, or try an find someone to go out with, I'd at least start off on the right foot.
