Hey everyone! I'm a newbie from Portland, Tx. I'm currently in the market for a my first sailboat. I have pretty limited experience, so I'm taking lessons to refresh what I learned in Scouts.
I'm 28, and have two children. Ideally, I was thinking that a 30ft sloop, (maybe an Islander, or a Columbia) would be something myself and my family could grow into. Eventually, (years from now) I'd like to cross the Gulf to the islands so I'm looking for a boat that will be seaworthy enough for that.
I'm open to any advice the venerable members have to impart.
BTW, I would love to meet some local guys and gals to go daysailing and shorten the learning curve I have ahead of me, as well as get to know some new people.
