You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey Ian,

Where in NC are you?

Here is the situation: I am a college student in Charleston, SC. My grand plan is to live aboard on a mooring in Charleston Harbor (and on my friends couches) for my final semester next fall. After that I hope to head South to Florida and maybe down the islands.

Here are my criteria for a boat:
Must have a head with shower.
Must have a functional galley.
I would prefer wheel steering.
I hate small outboard motors, so I would really prefer a diesel inboard.
Needs to be able to sail single handed in a pinch.
Needs to be safe for island passages.
I need the boat to be ready to go for $12,000 +/-

Any suggestions and/or boats to avoid would be greatly appreciated.
The best boat for you, with your budget, would probably be a Catalina 30. They are numerous, have all of the features you want, and can be had in fair to good condition for the amount you want to spend.

Avoid MacGregors

Don't buy anything without having it surveyed

Make sure you know what it is going to cost you to insure it. You will not be able to rent a place to keep it without insurance.

Look in Chas Craigslist

There's a nice Newport Mark III 30', the guy just lowered his price to 11900 or thereabouts. I talked with him, it's already on a mooring.

Did someone actually say there aren't a lot of boats FS in Chas? My mind hurts...
