Newbie to Sailing has a boat question...
First I would like to say hello to eveyone here...!
I was going to buy a speed boat until I spent a little time on my freinds sail boat. Immediatly I was a changed person...
Background: I am American/Persian, served in the US Marine Corp and now am a System(Sales) Engineer for a router company.
My question: I have the option to buy either a Lipincott 30, 1980 or a a Irwin Citation 34 1984.
This will be my first boat, I plan on sailing in the open ocean to the Florida keys from Miami and up to NY some day. My freind (20 years experience) will be teaching me how to sail.
Which boat would you recomend for me...my wife and my brother will also be sailing with me. I am 6'00 so I would like to be able to stand up...
