6'2" is not tall....

I'm 6'2" and that is not at all unusual for most North American Sailors.

I know several similar height sailors that have crossed the Atlantic in boats smaller than 30'.

I've had a 26 that was very comfortable.

It is all in what you want and can afford. Most boats interior centerline heights are comfortable to us short 6' 2ers...

I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.... Jack London
