Ok hello everyone. I am seeking experienced sailors and boat owners' opinions. I am 25 years young a prior Navy Sailor, commercial diver and currently commercial fisherman. I'm moving to Santa Barbara for school in the fall of 2015. I want to buy a sailboat for these purposes: a place to live, a place to do commercial diving from(big enough deck for some small equipment like volume tanks and air compressors), a place for my dog to be able to walk without the boat tilting too much, a boat that can sail across the world. I would appreciate any opinions and I ask you to spread the word on this. I am also seeking anyone who wants to take me under their wing so that I can get experience and or do some networking for a future boat purchase. I would be available as soon as mid September 2014. Thank you all.
