I'd point out that an ODay 23 is probably too small to be very self-sufficient in terms of water or electricity...and as such will have you running to a marina to fill the water tank or charge the batteries fairly often. The more self-sufficient a boat is, the lower the costs can be. Having a watermaker means you can often avoid buying water in remote areas. Having solar panels or a windgen often means you don't have to run the engine to re-charge the batteries or go to a marina to use shorepower to charge them.

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.
