Greetings my Fellows and Fellowettes!

I am highly passionate but considerably inexperienced. Have dreams of living aboard cruising east coast until my knowledge and confidence crawls upward to singlehand some gaps... would like to relocate to northeast( it seems regions dictate sailing ability)


Based in the South Carolina region... would like advice on first LA:
where to start
how to make it work without a trust fund
what boats to consider
safe way to gain blue water experience

Experience consists of:
sails a 24' cruiser on the local reservoir
owner of a Flipper Scow
early Sunfish memories

Advice, constructive or plain out demolishing- all is welcome as you welcome me into your online portal

Thanks ahead

-j

Hey krys - welcome to SN dude.

There's tons of info on here - as well as many, many salts that will talk you through just about anything.

While you're waiting for some responses you can start poking around in this thread: The Salt's Corner Table

It's a thread with some of the best info to some of the most asked questions around here - including yours. And you can see who some of the go-to guys are.

Enjoy.

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

~BONES~
