SD, how can the OP hijack his own thread?

By interjecting your admonition that he read your sailnet initiation thread, and offering no information that relates to the OPs question, have you not in fact hijacked the thread yourself?
Please read your own sig link.
Yes, i have also hijkacked the thread, so i will read the sig link as well.

Sailboat, the Islander is a better choice, BTW.

The y are different boats for sure. I wouldn't want a Venture personally. The Cat 22 has the advantages of easy trailer-ability which corresponds to a much greater cruising range. It also has a great class organization. If you relly want to learn to sail well you can start racing one design. You will see the vast difference in the front of the fleet and the back of the fleet. The folks at the front are most likely going to be willing to share all they know with you so as to enable you to enjoy your boat to the max. If you want to keep the boat in a slip and just do some local sailing and or some further liveaboard cruising then I would prefer the Islander Bahama. Survey anything before you commit. Just my thhoughts
