Re: New to sailing..Looking to buy 356 or 36 Hunter
That's a lot of boat for newbies. How new are you? Does sailing sound cool to you or do you plan everything else around the possibility of being on the water? The reason I ask is that's a lot of boat to get rid of if you find out that you hate sailing. It happens. I suggest, just food for thought, get something smaller, in the 25-27 foot range. If you love it after a couple of seasons, drop the extra $30k and move up. If you hate it, sell the other at a minimal loss and take up some other activity. Plus, you make all the mistakes, and there will be many, on something that is less likely to make you cry . . . or broke . . . .or both, should something go terribly wrong.
