My new standard response is buy a Catalina 22, if that's too small then a Cat 27, if that's too small then a Cat 30... And nobody needs a boat bigger than a 30.... that's just plain wasteful.
Thousands of purchases cannot be wrong... Which is also why we should all drive a Prius (you know they make several kinds now, I know because I've seen the stupid cartoon commercial during these debates I feel like 1 billion times)... Lemme share:
Once you've used a dremel tool to remove that stupid jingle out of your head, or maybe that's just me, I'll re-look at this thread and provide a more lucid response.
I am thinking these debates require one to drink heavily first. Maybe if the candidates did too!
