  1. Buy? Or Charter?

    Boat Review and Purchase Forum
    Our first venture into the sailing world as a couple was a resounding success over the holiday weekend. We spent four nights (3 at marinas, one on the hook) with family and it appears the bug has bitten pretty hard and I'm starting to decide which way to go - purchase or charter? Pros...
