Welcome

My question is...who is them? Your young ladies? If it is then be sure they can swim good. That way they will be at ease on the water.

I guess it would depend on where you are located when you ask how can you get out with them more. Also their ages would be a factor, and what do you consider economical?

You could always buy a 20ft, or so boat for very inexpensive, and sail when ever, and where ever you want. Most likely it will be trailerable, and that opens up a lot of territory for the price of gas. In your mind's eye what would you like to see happen? A family that plays together stays together most of the time.........

There are no dumb questions!

Thanks imagine...in my minds eye...I see

my whole family living on a boat having a great time maybe just for the weekends at first....

Where do I begin in shopping for a 20ft+ boat....I feel so lost....

I just started renting and at $40 bucks an hour it's starting to add up... the rental guys say it will cost more if i buy a boat...

George,

Is there a "boating club" in your neck of the woods? Something similar to the Chesapeake Boating Club, as an example? Chesapeake Boating Club at J/Port | FlexBoating | Sail and Motor Boat Club

The Club owns the boats, and the members use them on a flexible schedule.
