Tempest, I could smell traffic coming. I have a keen sense of smell typically reserved for pregnant women. ;P

Seriously though, thanks for the inadvertent marinetraffic link. That is incredible....

I won't JK, but it would be nice. Im crewing on a hankon boat now and see how it's a pain even with a group of 5.

No, no idea on a boat. I'm torn between a tow-size 17'-19' and something that I'd...

Fantasic advice from everyone. I'd read a smattering of buying a boat posts, but this gives me particular perspectives on the hazards. I've done some fiberglass repair on Optis and have seen how...

Thanks Puddin for the idea about a ghost rider. 420 is a piece of cake singlehand. If it gets too complicated, I just let the jib go or let the main all the way out. I'm just worried about having a...

Exactly. The exact words: "when I run aground" is a phrase I have in my head. It will be a matter of time. Also sailing without a motor into a tricky marina and into a slip is not an experience I'd...

Thanks TVW, SVA and Soul. These are all great answers. I'd consider my vague question answered.

I'm basically setting goals for myself so I can work toward, such as an overnight coastal...

Capttb, are you saying an older keelboat is going to be too old to be of value? If it's a 30 year old boat that it's too in need of repairs to be worth the marine survey and dragout?

I'm sure it...

Along the same lines, great quote Dave:

-An adventure is never fun while your having it.

Almost like writers don't like to "write", but enjoy "having written."

That all makes sense. Thanks for the answers. I imagine buffetting around and spinning all night wouldn't be comfortable. Do I recall hearing about something called a sea anchor that is like a...

Good luck Mojo. I am sort of in the same price range and size as you. Although I am worried I'll out grow a 22', but am still intimidated by the idea of a 27'.

If you are going to be on a lake,...

Checking out or inspecting a $3-6K boat?

If you aren't getting a $20k+ boat and are looking in the $3-6,000 range, I'd imagine you wouldn't get a boat broker to even look at it.

If you are looking at a cheaper boat, what is an...

Overnighting in the Ocean

Ok, I'm a little entranced about the idea of sailing out a dozen or so miles into the ocean and spending the night.

Im gathering if you are too close, you'll wake up grounded on the beach. If you...

1)Boat 2)Insurance 3)Slip 4)Seatow What else?

Are there any other costs (naturally besides repairs) that I should consider before getting a 27' or so sailboat?

Especially suited for a noobie? (see I mentioned SeaTow)

Single Handing a 27' as a first boat?

Im wondering how big the jump is.

I've taken a summer full (3 days a week) of 420 classes. I took a 3 day certification class on a 32'. I've also been crew on a long distance, 7 day trip on a 43'....
