Re: Boat shopping: round two
Have you considered renting/chartering a boat? While you didn't say how much time you have to sail/maintain a boat you did say "Unfortunately, I haven't been able to sail since."
How often do you think you will get the whole family on the water? Once a month? Four times a year? Maybe renting a boat a few times will enlighten you on just how enthusiastic the Admiral and her crew are towards sailing.
