Boating n00b here, can anyone give me a rundown on what to look for in a recreational boat?

I've seen people at the lake with their boats - waterskiing, tubing, etc.
That looks like fun. I want to do that too.
I think I'll get a boat in the spring.
Problem is, I don't have a clue about boats beyond what was stated in "Lethal Weapon" ("there's the front, there's the back, water all around").
If I want a pleasure boat for waterskiing or tubing, uh... where do I begin? I've got no clue what I'm even supposed to be looking for. So I'm fresh prey for a salesman.
Can anyone give me orientation? ways to find an inexpensive boat are useful too.
Also I have a small car (Civic), no trailer, no trailer hitch either.
Please help a n00b
