We took the step with our beneteau 36
it has extended our season by about a month on each end- so that is a big bonus as that means almost six months in the water.
don't notice much difference in sailing, at anchor we tend to respond more to wind changes-- but then we already have so much m ore freeboard that will happen any way
funny, we never get invited to other boats cockpits for drinks-- they always cart it over to our mooring....
