New to Sailnet new to sailing - Almost!!

Hello all.. I’m new to Sailnet and hoping to be new to sailing here shortly. Having had a life long love for the ocean, I always dreamed I would have a boat one day.

Now 40ish and running out of excuses I hear the call once more. I’m looking for advice on a good 30+/- boat suitable for Chesapeake Bay and eventually coastal sailing. And please treat me like the 5yr old I’m when it comes to knowledge of boats and sailing. You would think I would have learned something after 10yrs in the Navy. But I guess that’s what happens when you fly instead of sail
