Re: Looking at a boat tomorrow

People spend weeks on 22' boats all the time. I'll admit that 24 or 25' would be a lot more comfortable. I spent 12 on my Catalina 25 last summer (a couple of days with a friend, the rest with my wife).

A small part of boat ownership is the purchase price. A 33' boat would cost me about $3000 more per year to own (than a 22') after moorage and bottom paint, but not counting other fees. It sounds like you are on a tight budget, so that may matter.
