Well said, Paul.

I would also add that for the 2 of us, 30' meets our needs. Further, going bigger means more boat systems to learn and more $'s needed for improvements.

Instead of buying a different boat, I can see spending money on additional improvemens that increase our enjoyment. However, I doubt if those improvements will significantly affect the boat's re-sale value.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat
