Opinions sought: Good boat to cruise from New Orleans up to Maine...and is cheap.
I am looking to buy my first sailboat. I have experience dinghy sailing, day sailing, some overnight racing, and coastal cruising (short stuff mostly), but all on other people's boats. I have not had to buy anything before, and I find it terrifying. So, I come to you for advice.
As stated in the title, I want to cruise from New Orleans up to Maine, stopping to explore and visit places along the way. I am thinking of a boat around 30 feet and - hopefully - in the $15,000 range. 30 feet, because I am comfortable with that size sailboat, and $15,000, because I think I could afford it. Of course, this is all subject to change.
