Not yet a sailor, but very interested

Hi, just another daydreamer I suppose. I've been looking into getting a sailboat for a couple years now and figured it would be best to educate myself a little before making a bad decision.

I'll be attending the Strictly Sail show again in a couple weeks. It's become a bit of a tradition for my daughter and I; she's 4 now and this will be our third year attending.

So I'll be here asking questions and reading until this economy improves to the point that I can afford a toy again...

Hey Bryan...

I've been here just a few hours longer than you but I'll offer up a welcome. You're way ahead of me...I haven't even been to a boat show!

Hey man, you can learn to sail for a couple hundred bucks, and own a boat for that too. Don't let prices discourage you, there are cheaper boats to be had than the ones at the shows.

Welcome to Sailnet, there are plenty of us here to answer your questions, so feel free to ask!

Welcome aboard. This is the best market in years for buying a used boat. Don't worry about making a bad decision, because making no decision at all is a bad decision. Every day you spend thinking is one less day you have sailing. Find a boat, get some input here, get a survey, and get your hull wet.
BTW, the sooner you get your daughter sailing, the better. I am not going to say a thing about the fact that she is sitting behind the wheel of a Macgregor.
