Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

Thanks sailguy! I will probably get back into it shortly, but I am tempted to "go all out" again and get a 10-15 year old sloop or cutter in the 36-42 foot range, and live aboard. At age 53 in two months, I'm looking to downscale my life and rent is SO expensive here in southern California - you would not believe what it costs for a place in a nice building in a safe neighborhood.

I would not be one of those live aboards with permanent potted plants all over the decks. I would actually sail the boat. I realize now that Hawaii, Seattle, Vancouver, and maybe the Sea of Cortez once a year are more my speed than the South Pacific and Indian Ocean.

Cheers,

Glenn
