Nicco61 is on a distinguished road

Hello all my boating brothers and sisters. I have been lurking on this site for a while now and figured it's time to post. I have been a power boater for years and am thinking of selling my present boat and coming over to the dark side hahahah and purchasing a sail boat. Mainly thinking of a trailer sailor because of the high fees in Key West to keep a boat in the water but that's a bit smaller than I want to go. I'd like a boat in the mid 30's. There is also a lot of areas to moor in the area that are free but I am concerned about the safety of mooring a boat "anywhere."
So I am basically trying to get some advice from the learned members of this forum. So, what do you guys think? Suggestion? Advice?

Wow, Nicco! How high is up? There are so many considerations for small, trailerables vs. larger moored/slipped boats. But this is the right place to learn it all and then decide what's right for you. As you know, every boat is a collection of compromises, and whether to go small, trailered or larger, in the water will ultimately be a compromise decision. The good news is that either way, you win.

Welcome aboard.

Sailing isn't a matter of life and death. It's much more important than that!
