Re: Boat Buying By The Numbers
You should determine what you will use the boat for 90% of the time and get a boat suited to it. For us, it's coastal cruising. We like several destinations that are 30 to 50 miles away and would like to get there and back on long weekends, often with guests. Speed rules, followed by liveaboard comfort. We found the exact boat for the job.
Any boat can go anywhere the other 10% of the time, if you plan and outfit properly.
p.s. the validity of many of these numbers is hotly debated. Don't obsess.
