Seeking Advice

Question that came in through a professional connection on Linked In.

"As I start looking at an early retirement, I am seeking advice on any sites you may recommend where I might educate myself. I am leaning more towards a power cruiser style rather than sail, but still welcome any thoughts you might be willing to share. Your thoughts?"

This really has more follow-up questions than answers. As I get answers to help clarify the question, I'll post additional thoughts.

For now, the short answer includes the following:

We learned a lot through sailing schools and chartering. A charter with a skipper can be money well spent.

Some chartering bases. There are more on US West Coast, but this should help to move the conversation forward.
