happy new years all... I'm new to the site and I hope that by tapping into this sites users I'll avoid some of the pitfalls boaters face when they decide to get into sailing. Some back ground - now looking at retirement in 3-5 years. Grew up sailing on Long Island, work took me away from the coast for a number of years. When I finally made it back to Delaware went to the dark side and have been running a fishing boat, but still missed sailing. My wife and I would like to start to explore the east coast from the Chesapeake to Key West during the winter months. I would like any suggestions a 30'-38' boats that would work for a couple in their early 60's, (shallow draft, easy to sail and roomy interior). My agenda is to charter some of the boats over the next year or two to see which hull fits my needs the best. Any feed back/advice would be great.
