George, well said, you're 100% right. You've got to understand the difference in the hull/hp it takes to move and the difference between a displacement and semi displacement hull. The only way it will make sinse is to do some reading.Larry

Galaxy Girl, the steps outlined by George are almost precisely what we did after scouring internet forums with scattered results. There is just too much information coming at you to understand what applies and what doesn't. There is no substitute for chartering when it comes to showing what you like or dislike IMO. Day charters are very eye opening.

I might add that finding a local professional captain that you can relate too may help if you can not locate a naval architect, but do the reading first. This process while not glamorous will flatten out the learning curve by a large factor.

Great advice George.
