That's my hope with this boat. At some point I think I would like to own a larger boat, but a 22' should get me used to some big boat issues except that my mistakes will cost $300 instead of $3000.

That being said, Catalina Direct wants $500 for a spinnaker pole? For a freaking 8' bit of aluminum with plastic at each end? And how can roller furlers be so expensive, it's just a spool!!!!! (I know, I know, I realize how this sounds.)
