Get out on the water in anything you can. Buy a boat that you can handle by yourself if need be. Experience will let you know what you really want in a cruising boat then move, if necessary to something more suited for long term cruising. That's what I'm doing and it seems to be working. Having a lot of fun with a smallish boat and getting my confidence level up to a point where I'll be happy to go larger although I may just bugger off in what I've got.
