If so I don't know anything about sailing either. Keep your dreams and have fun learning. And don't be surprised if your ideal boat changes a lot in the next couple of years as mentioned.
Did I mention the pirates, crocodiles and sharks?

Dang! I forgot the gorillas.

I think we've got the makings of a new movie script here.

Welcome aboard from another transplanted stuble jumper, been awhile though. You need to carry a good gun to take care of the gorillas.

Welcome aboard.

Sent from my SPH-L720 using Cruisers Sailing Forum mobile app

Maybe I'll save a war here and build my own. Got lots of 5 gal buckets laying around, some 1" rebar and a few bags of cement. Once it hardens up I could peal off the bucket and take my brand new Razoobilt Anchor down to the shop and get it chromed! Maybe mass market it! I could become the Anchor King!!
