Re: New sailing family + new (old) boat = OMG

...a quick update on the IP31...

Even though we felt the price was "decent"- after considering what the boat needed, from a newbie perspective we opted to take this particular boat off our list and look for something a little less pricey and a little more ready to go for this new sailing family.

While the IP31 is a very stout and roomy boat, and we really love the quality feel...we decided it may not be the best choice for a first boat from a learning perspective. We're probably going to be ending up in a C30 or similar boat.We had our eyes on a very nice Hunter 30 but decided we like the characteristics and quality (resale $ and owner support) of the Catalina 30, well, more.

After getting some salt in our veins (freshwater "salt" that is), perhaps we'll end up in an IP someday, slowly making way at the far corner of the wind when time and money are less of a concern.

Thanks again all for your comments.
