Hi from PT

Hello everyone.
I'm from sunny Portugal (day)dreaming of sailing from a trailer...

I'm trying to figure out what used boat can be mine...

I'm just starting to come to terms with potential costs and problems to avoid, reading all sorts of reviews and online forums
Havenīt started actually visiting the available boats yet, but I will, once I narrow it down a bit further.
I have some doubts naturally, that I'll post eventually in the right sub-forums, hopefully someone will be able to help out.

Pedro.

Re: Hi from PT

Greetings Pedro. Act upon your ambitions and enjoy every minute. We all started in small boats of one kind or another. My first was a 17 foot trailerable sloop. You can have a lot of fun in a small package.

Re: Hi from PT

Thanks guys!

I learned to sail in a small 420 and a Vaurien, and loved it, so yes, I believe it can be a lot of fun just with a small boat
