Before jumping in on a 37' boat you need to learn if you really will like sailing and living on a boat. It isn't what most in your position dream it is. Go down to the marina on a weekend morning and ask around for someone to take you out. Then find a weekend trip etc and once you are got the feel by all means get a boat.
Or go the way I did, take lessons, join a club and sail on the weekends, then buy a boat (will be the wrong one so plan to replace).
Cruising = living on a small cramped boat and dealing with weather in order to do boat maintenance in excotic places.
Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
