Zal-

Cam has a very good point... what is your intended usage. That will really affect what kind of boat you should probably get, as he has pointed out.

If you're living aboard at the dock primarily... it might even make sense to get a smaller, more modern boat, as it would have as much room or more as the traditional double enders you're looking at, yet cost you less in dock fees. Pick the right one, and it'll still be capable of doing serious long-distance coastal cruising and limited bluewater passages.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
