Hello

I am from Indiana, about an hour from Indianapolis. New to sailnet and sailing in general. Well, other than a brief experience with a dinghy way back when in boy scouts. We are starting off by looking for a 21-25' trailer sailer. Had a few leads but nothing has panned out yet. Love all the advice on SailNet and am looking forward to moving forward.

Geoff

Welcome to Sailnet! Glad you joined up, you will not regret it. There are some very knowledgable folks on this forum and it seems like there isn't a question someone can't answer.

Good luck in your search for a trailerable luckily they can be had at a pretty fair price these days and it can be easy to get out on the water. Don't be fooled into buying a project boat unless you are ready and willing to do all of the work. But, a project boat can be a very rewarding experiences when you bring an older sailboat back to life.

My best advice is don't buy more than you need. As I was a first time buyer once I bought a boat that didn't really fulfill the correct needs that I wanted so read some books on sailing and trailer sailing in general, these can be very helpful.
