Re: Im buying a big boat! But i have never sailed
i have to disagree with you, i have talked to F/C boat owners and they wouldent have any other type of boat if they have got a good F/C, the fact is they can take a beating unlike flimsy glass boats, and another good thing for me is that this one has a twin keel, so when i beach it in low tide which i probably will do, it will stand upright until the high tide comes back in ! happy days, in fact a think its the perfect boat for a beginer, i can bounce it off the dock and beach it all in the same day with little effect to the boat.
as for insurance, it has been insured for years with no problems.
It sounds like you already know what you are going to do and want your decision validated.
People on sailnet might be a little conservative for my liking, but they are usually right. Especially when they are all in agreement.
