Wreckoning, I know what you are trying to say/ask, and I understand completely. You just want to know, what would be a good all-around choice of boat, that would fit your needs. Here is a good link to help answer some of your questions, and a little education to study up on Boats & Rigging
Some non-bikers dont understand that motorcycles have souls too!
Bash, if I had to explain it to you...you still wouldnt understand.
Wreckoning, best wishes to you in your quest. I was just like you once, and I figured out my way. As said, ya need to bone up on sailing through alot of information available online. This forum, is my favorite, loads of info here if you take the time to read, as I have read nearly every posting
here for the pure educational value.
