Hello from the Chesapeake Bay are
Hello everyone. I just want to say that after months of trolling various topics and posts that I am really impressed with the candor and quality of information that is shared here.
I'm still stuck on dry land. I've been searching for my first sailboat for about eight months now. Unfortunately I spent a great deal of time searching Craigslist...and while I'm sure that good boats get posted there, for the most part I've found that it's a lot like online dating. If people have a picture of themselves that they really like, that's what they post - even if that photo is 20 years old!
I've started crawling marinas now, and I'm determined to find what I'm looking for ( 26-30 feet, daysailor for coastal cruising). Ultimately I want to go live aboard and long distance cruising, but I need to start small and learn first.
Thank you all for the amazing amount of information posted here. trust me, when I do find my boat, I'll probably wear these forums out with questions!
Best to you all,
