*shy wave* Noobie here

I am new on here, just joined about 5 minutes ago. I am interesting in learning about sailing. I used to go out on a Cruiser/Yacht when I was younger for deep sea fishing. Now I follow my dad for scuba diving while my husband makes ROVs.
I want to learn about sailing. It is something that both my husband and I are both interested in.
Also, we are looking for a boat that is unwanted and needs work. We want a good project boat. We've got a small '67 Glasstron named "Salt Water Sally" that I used to use for shrimping but we want something that can go out and do small sailings around the Charleston harbor.
My passion is tall ships and one day I plan on owning one. But I need to get my sea legs first.
I am hoping for people to nudge and point me in the right direction. I don't want anything right now over 35'.
Nice to be on here.

I am a photographer and videographer. I am also a myth researcher and love learning about more myths. Charleston is full of them.

Welcome to Sailnet, glad you're here. Good luck with the boat search. Enjoy looking around this site, you'll likely find a few 'myths' to be researched.

For example, is it true that your boat sails better with multiple propanegrills attached to the rail?

Will cockpit stereo speakers sink your boat?

And most importantly, if your boat has air conditioning are you a real sailor?

Really burning issues to be researched and revealed.

Anyhow, excuse the diversion and welcome aboard. Hope to hear of your adventures.

Welcome to the asylum.
Since you didn't mention your budget but did mention getting a 'project' boat I would have to assume you don't have a lot of money to throw at this idea just yet. Check craigslist under 'boats' (you can search for sail to make it easier). I found the following in the Charleston area:

Ranger 23' sailboat $3500
23 FT SAILBOAT

Might investigate this one too
23 ft Sailboat and 2 man Kayak
