Hello all! I found this forum while researching different boats, lurked and read a bit, and finally decided to register and be a participant. I grew up in Tennessee sailing on the lakes in Hobie cats, Sunfish, and various daysailers, along with of course tear-assing around the lake in overpoweres Bass-boats fishing
A few years ago I considered a larger sailboat as a liveaboard
as I spent a LOT of time traveling and otherwise on the road. so much so that I in fact did not have an apartment of my own and stayed with friends when I was "home". I couldnt find a boat within range that felt like "me", and before I did I moved to Colorado to a job where I could "settle" down a bit and not be traveling quite as much.
Fast forward, and a marriage(first time for everything!), new house, etc later, and my wife and I are looking to go sailing! No real plan, just picking up a daysailor to enjoy on the local (20 minutes from the house) reservior, and looking about for something in the 37 to 40-ish foot range, but thats fodder for another thread in another section. My wife and I are reasonably young, and there is no hurry or rush.
