Re: Smallest boat you can live with

I love how some of you are able to cruise in under 30' boats. I do wonder if we've gone too big with the 37-footer. It's not just our size, but also the displacement that is big with our Rafiki (28,000#). Everything is hefty on this boat.

Most would find our living space pretty small. Compared to a modern 37-footer we are pretty small down below. Unlike modern boats which maximize living area, our boat emphases side deck and sailing space. Still, she's very comfortable for the two of us (and our cat).

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
