SeaLover.....everything you just said makes so much sense on all kinds of levels
for many, many sailors. I like your signature also... "Keep the expenses low and the good times high"...... really, you bring up another excellent point that
really is not discussed a whole lot - cost. Sometimes one of the biggest challenges in this sport/hobby is not the weather, its longevity..... there are many sailor in particular and boaters in general that simply fade in and out of sailing and sometimes just stay out completely, because it just sometimes costs to much in a tight economy and that $2,000 to $5,000 per year just has to go.
I think thats why, more than ever the Venture series and other trailer sailers just make so much sense.

Of course I still want the Tashing 31, along with a signed photo of Bob Perry and myself with two beers in our hands hanging in the galley. But I am still happy with the Catalina 22 on the trialer as like you I can just stuff it in the pole shed out of the snow!

Happy Venture Sailing !
