Hello from Pahoa, Hawaii

Just moved to the "Big Island"- was a big time sail enthusiast about 20 years ago, only had a small sloop and the biggest boat I helped crew was a 20m Yawl of a friend of mine. I went through wikipedia just to re-familiarize some of the terms, and realize I have really lost a lot of knowledge! I am going to buy myself a small boat locally, a little island hopper to get by for now, but I want to build or buy a bigger boat in the future, but probably build, since I have something specific in mind. I will probably ask some dumb questions, so please be patient with me!

Welcome cruisingram.
I enjoyed visiting the Big Island.
Will you keep your boat in Hilo or is there a closer achorage/marina?
Whatever boat you get make sure it is sturdy and vog resistant.

I will actually be closer to Issac Hale park, and unless I get something too big, I will be hauling it out after each use.
