Hello all. Been lurking around and reading articles for a while on here and decided to join and feed all the wealth of knowledge from the sailors on this site. Currently Stationed in Bahrain but moving to Hawaii at the end of the year and making my purchase of a boat. Been in the Navy 16 years and spent 11 of that at sea. Already taking sailing lessons and preparing for more advanced classes while I am in Hawaii. Currently debating between a Pearson 422 Center Cockpit and a KP 44 Center cockpit. So any advice or 2 cents would be greatly appreciated and look forward to getting to know everyone.
