Re: Hello Everyone!

Hello, Beth, welcome aboard.
While the others ply you with sensible advice and well-reasoned responses, I am just gonna straight-up high-five you for just plain getting it done and BUYING A DAMN BOAT!

The more time someone spends dillying and dallying and pondering and analyzing the data and asking for advice, attempting to find the very rightest, most perfectest boat for them, they are missing out on months, sometimes years, of sailing.
There is no perfect boat, but there is a "right" boat- any boat you can sail right now.
Enjoy it, make some mistakes, have some grins, get some experience ( a catalina 25 is a great choice for learning to sail, IMO) decide what you like , what you don't like, what you would change, and either change it, fix it, live with it, or start making a list of needs on your next boat...
Because there is always a next boat- even for those who spent years finding the perfect boat.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
