Welcome aboard from one newbie to another, just went out sailing this week for the first time in a while, was great, had alot of fun, out on a fellow forum member Hunter 37, and it was a perfect evening for a sail on Lake Michigan. I don't own a boat yet, but hopefully someday soon!!

No I plan on putting her in lake Lanier this winter after I paint the bottom and hope to go south next winter possibly cruising the Bahamas. Crossing the Gulf Stream from Miami to Bimini will be a first for me. De wd4h ...-.-

Re: Intro new member

Well...I owned one of those and I'm not sure I would use that boat for off-shore work.

Re: Intro new member

I think that is a good idea. I'm sure if you did a search here or started a thread wanting opinions on a reasonably priced pocket cruiser, you will get lots of help.
Here's a link to Amazon and a book that will help you out...
Twenty Small Sailboats to Take You Anywhere: John Vigor: 9780939837328: Amazon.com: Books

http://scottsboatpages.blogspot.com/...-take-you.html

Opps...Here's the actual book online. Save your money...

Dave and Mindy Bolduc cross from Fla to the Bahamas in a 14' micro cruiser.

Microcruising

It's all in the weather windows.

A 14-foot mini-cruiser is minimalist. A 19ft is comfortable, and anything much larger than a 25 borders on ostentatious.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Glad you're listening to the folks who have owned what you have now. It's always a good thing to get the opinions of those who have that kind of experience.
kind regards,
