Re: Who''s living on what??

1972 Catalina c27. I primarily love it bc I've been modd'ing it to meet my personal tastes/needs. And, since it is small, the modd'ing is a piece of cake. What would I do differently? Sometimes I think I want a bigger boat, but then, reality sets in. For example maintenance cost. For example, costs to repair an engine. I've got an outboard. So, if/when that goes, I'll toss it and buy another for a fraction of the cost of an inboard. Also, hardware, rigging, sails, and even boat bottom cleaning & haul outs all increase. Though, not slip fees, so much bc I'm already in a 32 ft slip. Regardless, I end up disabusing myself of the bigger boat idea, and end up thinking up different ways to mod the one I'm on.
