Beginner with Silly Questions
Well, since this is my first post, I think I get 1 silly question, right?
I'm looking to buy a smaller sailboat (28') and all I know about boats and sailing is what I've been able to grab from youtube videos, forums, and books. Good luck to me right?
Ok, so one questions I can't seem to get answered is this. If I bought said boat, where do I put it? Can I anchor it in the bay, do I have to pay for a mooring or just stop and tie a rope to an empty post? Do I need a slip or a dock?
My location is West Palm Beach, FL. Peanut Island has sailboats sitting out in the water, I just don't know if they are technically anchored or moored AND if they are moored, do they pay? Or is there a free place to store my new purchase in the water?
Hope I'm making sense! Very nervous and excited at the same time.
