One thing to consider is whether the marina rents their slips by the size of the slip itself or by the actual measurement of the boat.

My boat is listed as 27' but with the bowsprit, it is 30' and I also have a wind vane that brings it to 32/33'. I did measure it myself just to get an idea of total length.

Aside from what it teaches you, there is simply the indescribable degree of peace that can be achieved on a sailing vessel at sea. I guess a combination of hard work and the seemingly infinite expanse of the sea - the profound solitude - that does it for me. - Billy Campbell
