If the world comes to an end, I don't want to be on a boat! I want to be in an aircraft watching it!

So - guys, I've been doing a lot of reading. I'm getting ready to by the Retirement Boat. (Purchase is a few years off - I need a stock market turnaround first.) Are Pilot House boats the crappy sailors some people think they are? I mean, the idea of being able to be at the helm indoors during crappy weather is very tempting.

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased

Personally I would not purchase a boat made after 1984, in 85 they started to learn the skimping on the fiberglass techniques. as to the size bigger does not make it better, It needs to be something that the two of you can handle when sailing.
I have single-handed a circumnavigation with a 40' morgan pilot-house ketch.
you may always upgrade equipment, but do not go totally overboard when you do. There is a lot of items on the market, while you think you may need them, you actually do not. Just use your head!!!!

Where will you land when the fuel runs out?
