It's an interesting little trip you take when you're in the process of buying your first boat. I was going to go a little smaller than what I initially bought, but a friend pointed out that it's wise to keep the number of boat transactions to a minimum. Buying something at the high end of your means runs contrary to the conventional wisdom, but it's better to grow into your vessel over the course of a couple of years rather than buy, sell, and then buy again. This is a good thread...
