Thanks - that's pretty much the plan, which is why this boat is appealing - just to learn and get experience. Sailingfool - I understand your points, but frankly, the budget is pretty limited and I'm not afraid of a little elbow grease. I'm sure sooner or later I'll want to move up and spend real money, but for now I just want to get my feet wet - pun intended.
The issue is how much should I have invested in a 30 year old Helms 25 and not get killed when it's time to sell and move up?
