All good things from everyone. Thanks.
As I am new to all of this and currently landlocked while finishing my next couple of months of flight training in Albuquerque, I learned a few things here that I didn't know (or think about) before. Nor would I really have the chance to figure them out until I get to Destin. However, now I feel I have a bit of a head
After countless hours researching, prioritizing, and seriously contemplating my primary use of the boat I have tentatively concluded that a power boat
would suit me best. Mostly because I'm uneducated and like beer
Kidding of course!
However, most of the time it will be docked. Fuel
vs space...space wins. In addition, when I do take it out it will be with friends so fuel
expenses will be split. Plus I'll be doing quite a bit of SCUBA diving
...power boat wins here as well. Another point, although I know I'd love to learn to sail and certainly will at another juncture in my life, now is not the time.
Plus, a motor
yacht just looks so sexy to me!
So, I'll get to Destin, talk to some salty folks, get some more info, step inside, drive a few around and figure out exactly what works best for me (as many have said to do).
