Welcome! I think you'll find the waters to your liking once you learn the subjects to avoid.

What brings you to the forum?

Welcome seasider! Are you a boater or just sitting on the 'seaside"?

Glad to have you with us, and hope to hear more from you. Lurkers are good, but active participants are even better.

Well fellows, looking to buy a trawler to go south in the winter. It's a bucket list thing, but also the only time I want to see snow again is on TV.

Can't say that I blame you, SS! Many of us are here for the exact same reason.

What do you want to be able to do on the boat? Fishing? Scuba? Cruise only? How many people? Range? Need a dinghy?

Identify what you want to do and what you absolutely need. Spec and capability requirements will help you focus on a style or size. Then we can help you with the rest of the might-haves, ought-to-haves, should-have-hads and never-haves with opinions ad nauseum!
