Welcome aboard Tammy, the search feature will be an invaluable aid to you for budgeting, selecting a boat, etc. There are many threads on each and will keep you busy for days!

Re: hello everyone i am new here

Aloha and welcome aboard!
It's good to have you here on the forum. Just a suggestion: A couple of sailing classes will get you up to speed very quickly and help you decide which way your enthusiasm will lead you.
Thanks for your husband's service and for you being there to support him.
