Hello from Charlotte, NC!

I'm Randy and I found this site while doing some initial research on sailing...my wife and I are planning on taking sailing lessons in the spring and then starting our search for a coastal cruising class boat. We are hoping to find a quality used boat approx 30-35'. While the thought of owning a boat is incredibly exciting....we plan to take our time and do it right the first time...Til then I am looking for books/info to help me with the fundamentals... Please offer any advice that will help this newbie! Thanks in advance!

Hey rp - welcome to SN dude.

There's tons of info on here - as well as many, many salts that will talk you through just about anything.

You can start poking around in this thread: The Salt's Corner Table

It's a thread with some of the best info to some of the most asked questions around here - including boat type questions. And you can see who some of the go-to guys are.

Welcome to the Forum...

Dig in and you will find many sides of information on about any subject you can think of in boating.

I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.... Jack London
