Re: Is bigger always better? Nordica 20
Living, even short term, on a 20' boat requires a special kind of person with a degree of agility. We are of compact size but at an age where the pup tent doesn't hold the same appeal as it once did.
Provisioning and even sleeping on the boat doesn't factor into the equation for now. We are fortunate enough to live 10 minutes from the marina. Schedules and preferences preclude anything other than daysails so there is no point in trying to create a house on the water.
I guess it comes down to the outfitting of the boat and whether to invest thousands more into this boat while my eye is still scanning the want ads wondering if the 'perfect' boat is out there. (That drives the first mate crazy.) That may never change.
It may be an unanswerable question, but I appreciate the insight of those who have gone down this path already.
