The tankage is going to be a problem on a smaller boat. Do you realize that you're looking at tanks equivalent to over four 55 gallon drums. Think about that...and think about the space on most sailboats... especially ones with a shallower bilge.... Something has gotta give...there's only so much space on a boat. And this doesn't even include the holding tank, which would have to be at least 15-20 gallons minimum.


What is the maximum length you're willing to accept?

What is the maximum beam you're willing to accept?

How important is the sailing performance... cause it sounds like you want a powerboat.

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.
