you are definitely not alone. actually you have more experience than me. I have lurked for a few weeks and decided to join today. My experience consists of about two months of drunken weekend crewing on a 41 footer in the Hamptons (NY). Have had power boats since I was a kid, but the silent sailing and the flap of the water (best way I can describe the sound) is what I dream of. I bought a '73 Venture with trailer for $2000.00 last year, and have been teaching myself to sail since.
I know nothing, I don't understand half the terms, and I guess I should read a book or two, but I have found my grasp of terms and ideas to be much better after lurking here.
anyway, I think you will find the members here to be very knowledgeable and helpful. And it also seems they are very patient with newbies. Afterall, we all gotta learn somewhere.
good luck to you
