I wanted to be the first to welcome myself to the forums! Been browsing and lurking around the forums
for a while, thought I would finally make an account in anticipation of making some posts.
Ive been sailing for quite some time now, went to sailing camps as a kid, went to the BVI years ago when I was in 9th grade with my next door neighbors and ive been in love ever sense. Ive taken a few classes
, and helped some friends and grandparents do some handy work on boats and I think im getting close to buying
my own(to live on). I get the idea ill be one of the younger people doing this as all the people I see at the docks are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.... im only 22 so to anyone with that extra 18+ years of experience and knowledge please pass along some tips
Im doing a lot of research
, trying to figure out what kinda boat I want, and trying to figure out what kind of boat I can afford. Any recommendations of things I should read or sites I should visit before buying
a boat would be helpful.
Basically I am waiting for a house to sell, as soon as it does im ready to do this.... just killing the time between now and then by trying to learn as much as I can.
Im sure ill make a post some time soon in a more specific thread asking for more guidance on what boats to be looking at, as it stands im still trying to narrow down what I like and want for myself, and exactly how much I feel comfortable spending / keeping for repairs
Thank you for all the wonderful posts on this forum, I hope to add to them with my own experience and knowledge soon!
