It might help you get a reasonable reply if you can state why it is that you have been around marinas for most of your adult life, but never owned a boat, yet now at age 63 want to learn to sail--ie. why now?
Also, if you are planning to buy a boat next year, why not take some sailing courses, and buy the boat now, begin sailing her in light conditions til you get it figured out a bit more, and take it from there?
I'm not suggesting that you not crew with others if an opportunity becomes available.
