Could be I was being told about day-sailor versions. People will buy too little boat, and then try to go places.
Hidden (glassed-in) chainplates are bad. They quietly corrode until a load causes a failure. Probably in a real blow.
Stainless steel always belongs in the sunlight and fresh air.
Ryusui, you shouldn't post that a girl will come only for short spurts. Jest.
However, it's not just marina docking that's an issue for larger vessels but also haul-outs. The bigger the boat, the more they charge and the fewer the boat-yards.
