Tic box for buying a boat
Looking at boats for a long while and I'm still confused. I started to set up a list of what I want then put them in priority.
Thought I'd check to see what's available as a tic list first. Even so I still think I'm floundering around.
I'm starting to wonder if you shouldn't buy something manageable that will do the job and get you on the water relatively inexpensively. Then your tic list will change and you can move to another boat when ready.
We're going to sail the SE coast mostly SC and FL and into the Caribbean. I need room for two couples at least. I need to be able to one hand her. I need some comforts being older and I need safety. I need anchors and sails that go up and down via buttons. I need a dinghy and motor. I want to be dry and comfortable when possible. My sailing experience is limited.
Thoughts? Check or tic box somewhere?
