Hello Steve and welcome to the forums
. I just signed up here recently as well, and there are great people who are extremely knowledgeable and willing to help!
The sailing bug is very infectious and can spread very quickly - so beware!
I accidentally stumbled upon a YouTube video for some liveaboards on a Trawler
(Tula's Endless Summer) roughly 6 months ago. I then found Delos and Vagabond's channel and kept watching videos and reading about sailing. A couple months after that I purchased a 'Sunset Sail' on Groupon and went with my wife on a 2 hour sailboat cruise
for our first time on a sailboat.
Less than one month later I purchased our sailboat! It happens fast! I am still obsessed...
