And sailing is not some secret know how for the chosen few. Go for it. I saw a macgregor on a trailer in good cond. for $2500 the other day. Keep us posted on your progress, the more people out there sailing the better!
Lol, you think it's bad now? It used to be a lot worse.

For the type of sailing that the OP is talking about doing, I agree with most of your post. I hope he has a vehicle that can tow the load though.
