Re: Power boater looking to learn to sail

You may wish to revisit the size of your first sailboat after taking sailing lessons.
Had I to do it over again I would buy a cheap dingy sloop (Welcome to the International Lightning Class)
comes to mind.
Why?
Because you can then sail and learn through experience at the lowest possible cost, and not get hung up on "working on the boat" syndrome.
