another vote here for the 30 ft boat. The amount of room, stability, and "liveability" with a 30 footer is unbelievable compared to a 27 or 28.
There are boats down there just plain stacked up looking for new owners, at very good prices. (less than 25k) and, I just happen to know a guy that is bored stupid and would love to teach someone to sail their own hole in the water.
We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through
Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
