Re: Smallest boat you can live with
So I'm curious -- how did you choose your current boat?
The implication of your question is size, so most of my factors aren't relevant: island berth to avoid crawling over a partner on the way to the head, separate shower in the head, good point, speed in a seaway, galley a foodie can operate in, ....
With respect to size I determined that in the middle Chesapeake Bay the cost of slips over about 40' goes up faster than boat length AND the availability of such slips declines quickly. Even mooring balls for larger boats are hard to come by unless you sink your own. Since I knew I would be based in Annapolis for some time a 40' boat made sense for my needs.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
