What boat should I buy? Log-In to Post/Reply

I am 24 years old and just got a job in Chicago. I have never lived there but grew up on the east coast and I am curious what boat I should buy. I will mainly be sailing recreationally so a family boat would be nice but competitive as well. I am looking for a 2 person monohull and am curious as to which type is the most popular on Lake Michigan in the Chicago area.

Thanks for all responses.

Check out the different yacht clubs along the lakeshore. Each has one design fleets that you can be part of. Also, there are some groups where you can purchase essentially time-shares on boats to use when you want.

You din't say where you want to keep the boat so that will also be a big determinant of that kind of boat to buy.
