New to sailing

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to thank everyone who takes the time to post in this forum. I've been reading your post for months and learned a great deal about sailboats. Sometime in the next month I'll be purchasing my first Pre-Owned sailboat armed with just enough knowledge to be dangerous. So thanks to you all I'll be taking a professional with me.

Thanks

Re: New to sailing

Been looking for a 34' shallow draft ( 4'6" max.) for use in the Florida Keys. I've been boating in the Keys for 25 years and would like to be able spend nights bayside.
