Re: Florida Newbie

I would look at a bit of a smaller boat to learn own - maybe an Erickson 29,31 a Cal 31, something along those lines - good solid older boats. Easier to handle - well built - well priced in Florida - you can buy a fairly well outfitted one for $10-12K, buy one that does not need a lot of work, better to spend your time sailing than fixing , if you find out you like sailing, cruising - move up to a larger boat in a couple of years.
