Do I just buy the boat and then pay for help if I need it or do I take all the ASA courses (already took ASA101 -Basic Keelboat Sailing) and then buy a boat? I think I know the boat I wanna buy but do I need to take 102 and 103, etc,- would rather spend that money in asking a Captain for help if I need it- any input?
Or should I just take ALL the couses but it seems to me that my boat is unique so what does it matter to qualify for, a 30' foot monohull if I actually buy a 34 foot multihull? Isn't it better to just buy the boat u want and then pay for specialized training on that specific vessel?
Whattya think?- I respect your input if you have experience with these issues-
