Re: What to look for in a new boat

You'll be fine. I went from an 18' trailer-sailer to a 25' pocket cruiser with a 4' iron keel last season. In the weeks before launching I was a nervous wreck about piloting a boat three times larger. Not only was it NOT too much boat, my wife and I are looking to upgrade to a 30' soon.

The peeps in the 40-50' monsters are laughing at both of us.
