The best search tool at Cruisers Forum is the Google
Custom Search, however I don't believe there is any search term that will deliver the answer to what the right boat
for your purposes is. That "right boat" question is a matter of intense and prolonged debate that is probably impossible to answer - there are just too many variables.
I would suggest that you spend some time getting familiar with the site. Over time, you will recognize that you gravitate to either power or sail, multihull
, center cockpit
or rear cockpit
, tiller or wheel
, gas or diesel
, etc. It's a virtually endless list, but as you gain familiarity with these different aspects of boats, you will form your own opinion of what speaks to you.
If you want more finely-focused information within some of those pairings above, then a Google
Custom Search within, say, the pros / cons of tiller vs. wheel
should return better results.
