If there's one thing that would have helped me decide, is to go to a marina and try to find a person willing to help you. What I mean by that is, help them do bright work, engine maintenance, clean stuff and generally talk about the ups and downs of boat ownership. That could encompass, slip fees, insurance, hull cleanings, and general run of the mill things you throw money at. Then there are topics such as navigation, anchors, and other stuff to just talk about while doing chores. Thats what would have helped me out in a big way. I know everybody has different opinions but seeing it first hand is great.
