Re: iam back..long time.but back

Welcome back aboard dirtydon. Congrats on becoming debt free. Good on ya.

It never hurts to look at boats even if you can't buy just now. "Steady Hand" has posted a couple of threads recently that you might be interested in: one of them is about trailer boats and pocket cruisers, and the other is about vessels under $30,000.

Re: iam back..long time.but back

Glad you're back in the world of the living, er, sailing, again. And yes, being debt free is nice!
There are a LOT of nice boats to be had for little $, so you can afford to be choosy.
BTW, you're playing in the waters where I started out (sailing)! Way back when I was 3.

Welcome aboard. Just make sure that everything is ship-shape, then cast off! Fair winds.
