You'll like the extra space with 3 kids.

Don't be seduced by a boat with a low price that "needs a little work". Bad idea!
The highlighted area is true but where are you going to berth it? There is nothing in Vancouver - you have to buy a boat with transferable moorage.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
