Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.

Half the size is a perk, not a negative :-) The 36T is just about right in my eyes, for volume, capacity but my dad is concerned about the increased weight and extra length for manovering at low speed. While I understand his concern, I feel that the extra 4000lbs and length is a benefit in a liveaboard especially under heavy weather conditions. I will be unlikely to be spending much if any time in close quarters in a Marina. Fuel and water tanking up is simplified by having well over triple the capacity.
