Ok, Let's Get This Over With.

greetings,
I have been lurking around here for quite a while now. I live in South Florida, and hope to be on a boat by the end of the year. eventually, I want to live on a 35 to 42 foot mono, but for now I am looking for about a 26 foot pocket cruiser with a shallow draft, so that I can take advantage of all the skinny water in Florida. I have very little sailing experience , but I love the ocean and adventure. about 15 years ago, I had a 23 oday that I learn to sail on .

Welcome to CF. Actually I think those with smaller boat go out more often and have more fun than those on 50' its just so much easier and cheaper
