First Boat Search
Hey everyone, I am looking for my first boat. I have been sailing for a few years, and am comfortable but never have REALLY done serious sailing, as in never more than 2-3 hours out at a time. I rent boats from a military base, as it is the most affordable around. That said, you cannot do much with the boats and they are not allowed to overnight. Sooooo
I am looking to purchase my first boat. I have a budget of a few k, and it seems that there are a few options out there. I am looking for something around 22-30 ft, and in good enough condition to sail without too much work. know that with an older ship, there will always be a bit of work, but you know what I mean.
Any way, the point of this thread: I have seen a few options and I am wondering what people's opinion of different ships are as in, Catalina, Hunter, Lancer, Macgregor, Ericson...etc...
I really don't know too much, again this is my first one, and I apologize if this is already a thread, so do not get to technical please. I like to just keep stuff simple....
