What type do I need?

I am a missionary to Mexico. I have a desire to have a sailboat and reach the small villages on and near the coast with food and medical supplies. I have have my wife and three kids ages 9,7, and 4. I have never sailed before. I am going to look for a school to learn. So i have a couple questions. 1. Any recommendations for how to learn? I live near Houston Texas. 2. What type of boat do you recommend? Something rugged with a bathroom and storage space. 3. How long would you recommend? I will really just be staying near the coast of Mexico. Dont have a lot of money to spend so even something the may need a little work will have to probably be the way i go. Thanks for your time.

Re: What type do I need?

The WestSail 32 is known as the WetSnail and Coral Crusher. A tough old boat with a big following.

Good luck

Looking for another pretty place to work on the boat.
