Hello all,
I am so glad to have found this forum! I have learned so much in the short time I have been here…I know I have only but touched the surface! I am a total greenhorn when it comes to boats, but am looking forward to learning. My goal is to eventually live aboard…but want to do so knowing full well what I am in for
I thank those who have already given me good ideas for steps to take and have instilled positivity …
I look forward to getting to know you all…and if you ever find yourself in Baltimore send me a shout!!

Mary

Mary,

Welcome to the nut house we call CF. You being in Maryland, have a lot of boats in the surrounding area. Do you have any idea of what you want in a boat, i.e. day sailor, dinghy sailing, coastal cruiser, off shore capable, mono, multi, well you get the idea, a lot of flavors in this past time.

Bob,

Hello there!
Thank you for your reply. Oh yeah…we have LOTS of boats in the area.
As far as what kind of boat...well, I have no clue! That is what I am hoping to realistically figure out. First things first though…because I have not sailed since I was a teen (so its been a few years ) I am joining a local club to take some classes so I can refresh and learn as well as get involved locally... But my thoughts are really trying to figure out what I could handle... because I will be on my own.
There are those here (I mean in Baltimore) that are telling me I should forget sailing and go with a motor boat…especially If I want to live aboard…
I am just taking it all in…suggestions welcome
Mary

Mary,

By involving yourself in a sailing class to refresh your skill set is an excellent idea. I am also a solo sailor and belong to a FaceBook group of other solo sailors which you might enjoy. Out of the 100 active members in that group, for some reason us guys are outnumbered. Go figure?
