Dream of Sailing as a living

One minor point, I would say that "Effort required to sail the boat and hours performing maintenance increase exponentially as the ''displacement and to a lesser extent length'', of the boat increases incrementally." It is my sense that displacement rather than length that really controls so much more about size of the boat in terms of sail area,ease of handling, maintenance costs etc.

Respectfully,

Jeff
