Re: New to the forum and to sail boat ownership
If this isn't an impulse buy (which I hope it isn't) try to put it off until the Fall. Prices for boats are high in the spring but around September when the threat of snow is looming, the prices plummet. Also, while deciding what to buy, consider all the costs, including but not limited to launch, haul, storage, stepping fees, cleaning, insurance, slip or mooring. So, eyes wide open. If you decided on a large trailer sailer, then the cost comes down significantly but you need a truck to haul with.
