Problems making the next move


I've owned a Hobie Tandem Island for the past two years. I love it. It has been my introduction to sailing. I'm totally hooked. I've joined a local yacht club and taken a few lessons, and sail a lot during the summer.

My question is this, I really want to buy another sailboat. But for the life of me, i simoly cannot figure out how to determine my next boat!

I think I want a dinghy.
I find the RS100 and 200 very intriguing.
I find a hobie 16 very intriguing
And I find a wayfarer or a CL16 very intriguing.

I feel like I need a dryer boat than my tandem Island.
I'd live to be able to sail with my wife and three kids

But I really really like the idea of having a speedster!

I'm lost... Any thoughts.

Re: Problems making the next move

\Well, your list does not include any dry boats for you, wife, and 3 kids. So, find an old Hobie in good condition for speed. Find another boat for family sailing. If they love the family boat the kids will love the Hobie as well.
Everyone needs more than one boat!
