Hello from Out West

Hello,

After chartering a boat to sail around the Channel Islands, I have decided it is time to get my own boat. I am rather new to this, so all of you out there who are veterans are much appreciated resources. Besides, who can pass up a good story?

Welcome. Read first. Read as much as you can and read some more. Also, don't buy the first boat you see.
Cheers.
