Re: Go bigger or go now?

As another who sails a comparatively small boat, I vote for going with what you've got...

There's absolutely no reason you can't make it out to the Eastern Caribbean in your 28-footer... Don't think about swapping for something bigger, until you actually feel the NEED to do so...

Saw an interesting piece the other morning with the authors of HAPPY MONEY: THE SCIENCE OF SMARTER SPENDING... Two of their recommendations were to invest in EXPERIENCES as opposed to THINGS, and to buy TIME whenever you can... Staying with your current boat, you'll be buying 3 years in your estimation, and can still have essentially the same experiences on your present boat, as one 5 or 10 feet larger...
