I wonder. It's true that a smaller boat is easier to handle with less crew, so their are more opportunities. We require two people aboard to cruise safely. However, once you can live aboard for the weekend, I find one is more likely to go and see what it's like, rather than believe a poor forecast. More often than not, we've had a good day or two of sailing that we would have ridden out at home, if the downside were not to just stay aboard at the marina and have a weekend get away. I will also head out to destinations I would have never attempted in a smaller boat without being certain of good conditions for the return leg.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
