 BUYING IN HINDSIGHT

"If someone mentioned to you they dreamed of going sailing, and expressed more than a passing interest in buying a sailboat, what would be your best piece of advice? And given the benefit of hindsight, if you were at that stage, what would you do that was different? What mistakes would you avoid? These questions were put to a number of cruising yachties recently in a survey. The most common mistakes were not buying the right type of boat in the first place and not learning enough beforehand. There are many traps to snag the unwary or inexperienced. Respondents tell of repercussions ranging from disappointment to severe financial hardship and worse. "
