Greetings to All

Just joined and am so glad I did. Looks to be a wealth of information and all the posts I have read seem very friendly and helpful.
I will be scouring the threads for the info I am looking for before I ask too many questions.
I am looking to purchase a 28 to 30ft sailboat to live aboard and cruise back and forth between panhandle of florida and the carribbean.
Still have to work so will be on the hook or mooring ball and perhaps a slip once in a while.
I know I have a lot to learn and this seems like a good place to start.
Just wanted to introduce myself and look forward to the day I can post the pic of my first boat.
Thanks to all for the informative posts for a newbie like me.

Welcome, you found your way to the best sailing forum anywhere and I have no doubt that you will get good advice here. James

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure...

Welcome aboard. You don't get smarter until you start learning. As long as you never stop there really are no limits. If there was a better place to be than CF I would already be there. Many have learned a great deal here and I know I still do.

Share your stories along the way, enjoy the wealth of what is here, and don't make a mess.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. There are a couple links after my signature and a book recommendation that talks about boats that might meet your needs.
kind regards,
