I would point out that Don Casey, in his book, Good Old Boat, states that many boat owners don't keep their first boat for very long. That they buy a boat, not being sure what exactly they're looking for, and settle on a boat. Then, after owning that boat a few years, they go out and buy a boat based on what their first boat has taught them about what they want in a boat and what is truly important to them. In many cases they keep this second boat for decades.

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.
