Young family getting ready for an adventure!!

Hello all!!

New member to the forum, but definitely not my first time visiting. I have wanted to sail since high school (2006) but being a young man and not making enough money I just lived vicariously through others and doing alot of research knowing one day I would own a boat. Well 10 years later add a wife to the mix, and two young boys (3 & 2) and a job that pays well we are ready to buy or first boat!!!! I've only sailed a dozen times, so we plan to buy a smaller boat mid 20-30' range to practice and entroduce the kids and really find out what features we want in a cruiser. After a year of final planning our goal is to upgrade and start a multi year sailing adventure.

I'm looking forward to all that I will learn from the vast amount of knowledge that is avaliable on this site.
