Yeah, small boats are a great way to learn. They will teach you how to look at the water and interpret wind pattens. More forgiving than a bigger boat by far. At the very worst, you get to enjoy a brief swim and cool off a bit.

Re: Hello from biloxi

Hope you learn a lot Matt. Sailing is a lot more fun than a power boat, anyone can buy a gallon of gas, but not everyone can get a sailboat to head in the desired direction. My offer still stands anytime... Bruce

Re: Hello from biloxi

not yet I've seen a few possibilities so far I'm looking for a 25 to 30 foot but I've got a couple months so ive been a little picky I dont want to rush it and settle on something when it's not what I want if that makes sense

Welcome to Sailnet. I made a trip to Biloxi a couple months ago. It's a nice area.

Re: Hello from biloxi

Matt, have you a plan for inspecting your boat prior to committing to a purchase? Do you know how to spot a maritime "Lemon"? Just don't want you to get a bad deal...and find out after its too late.
