Hey y'all! I'm new to the forums and sailing. My love and I have decided on a ten year plan to learn to sail and retire on the water. By my budget I figure we should own and be on the water in a 15 or so foot day sailer by next season taking lessons. 5 years own. Descent sized over night boat and 10 years be packing up to move aboard a 30-40' foot boat. Haven't decided what type but I've looked at numerous options and were reading everything we can get our hands on. Hope to see ya on the water soon.

Welcome to the forum...I'm always amazed that people can plan so far ahead. May all your dreams be realized.

Re: New

Thanks buddy. I've got a pretty solid budget and plan for it to happen in that time frame. Should I find out along the way I'm not really a sailor I have the budget to move to a tropical island somewhere. I also see you found my other post too. Hope everyone sees it in the tongue in cheek laughable way I do. Unless of course a millionaire wants to give me their old boat. Haha

Re: New

Welcome, Jef, and all the best on your plans. They seem solid and you'll learn lots in the process that will help form your decisions.

Don't worry about the vitriol toward your other post. There are all types on this site, and some people can be really quick to offend, although a GoFundMe link like that raised a skeptical eyebrow for me, too. But then again, there have been crazier ideas on here
