Length per se doesn't add any cost, complexity or difficulty in handling. Look at the displacement - that better reflects the difference in size.

The difference between a 35' and 38' of similar type changes nothing.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
