Congrats, now it is time to build your career. In the meantime, nothing wrong to work toward your dream
1. Use Yachtworld.com to do your initial search, read anything that is in you price range and above.
2. IF you are handy, it is a plus since those unloved boats are plenty around in the boat yards.
3. low balling is a bad word, but use it anyway. It is a buyer market. Walk away if you don't get what you want to pay.
4. Google is your friend.
5. Hang out the marina or sailing club. You don't need to own a boat to learn how to sail.
6. Be humble and work hard. No one dies due to hard work.
7. Report back with other questions.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
