PT,

Just wondering how you decided on that size boat for your first and whether you find it to be too small, too big, just right. etc?

I am a loooooong way from buying anything. Just starting to research different boats, their intended uses, strengths, weaknesses, etc. But I am in a similar situation: just my wife and I (and a small, spoiled dog) and want to use the boat for the same types of activities. I'm wondering how much boat might be too much to "handle" for a first boat. I've driven power boats up to 35 feet, but I realize there's a lot more going on with a sailboat. Input from anyone else welcomed, as well (and sorry if I'm digressing too much from the "introduce yourself" purpose of this forum)

BTW - RE; the flesh-eating monniker - maybe the previous owner of your boat was a former Uraguayan rugby player .

Thanks!

Ron
