Looking for some advice.... im a bit aways from buying
a boat but I want to start looking and researching now. Please give me some suggestions as to what boats you think I should look into.
I am a fast learner and quite technical, but dont have a whole lot of experience working on boats. I want to get something I can fix up, by the time I set sail I want to have done a lot of work on my boat and I want to know it inside and out, as well as have it set up just how I want it.
range is flexible, but as I said I want to do some work on the boat myself so I would rather get something for a good deal and then fix her up to my standards than get something shiny and spend all my money
I am looking to live on the boat so it needs to be something of size, bare min 32 ft.
I will be cruising between the ICW
mostly, but I would like something thats not a hunk of lead in case I decide to take it passage
making. I dont mind full or fin keels.... they both have ups and downs, as long as the boat sails
well. I prefer faster boats that can sail upwind, rather than lots of extra space.
Requirements- wheel steering
, fiberglass hull
, solid design, im looking for something that can take a little abuse... dont want to worry about passage
making if I chose to do that.
Anything im forgetting?
Thanks for your help!
