Yeah, I have a friend who is 6'4" and was much happier once he moved up to a 30' boat... anything below 20' was a bit tough on him.

I love your optimism. :-) A cruiser might not ever be in my future since my wife tends to get motion sick, but maybe sometime I can go out as crew, or on a charter.
Larger boats are better than dinghies and small daysailers for most people.

It does. After almost a full day with no replies I was starting to think I had BO or something. :-D

Yeah, I wasn't going to mention the BO problem... but take a shower and use a good deodorant... and you should be fine.

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.
