Re: Pitfalls of trading up?

Trading up has been a conundrum for SWMBO and I. We have kicked the fenders on a number of boats that seem perfect on paper, until one actually climbs aboard. Then we realize just how good we have it on our ridiculously pompous and over-equipped 23' boat.
We also really like our slip on our current dock, and going significantly bigger LOA-wise would necessitate moving docks. Our first solution was to buy a second boat to use as a "guest boat." It works, but not real practical. So, our solution is to go WIDER. A catamaran build is now underway. Sorta.
