I went from a Hobie 17 to a Hinckley b40. I didn't want to dick around with every boat in between. I knew I always wanted a b40 So I just held out until the time was right. The Biggest difference it that take offs and landings are a bit different between the two boats. I mean docking. It will take time to learn the new new boat as far as docking. I have had the b40 about 6 months and feel very comfy docking now. Except for that one time I hit the piling with the flag pole trying to back in, she don't back well. Broke the staff but glued it back together. Then there was the time I forgot to uncleat the the spring line leaving the dock!, That was embarrassing...

That is the main reason we are just going for the 34, why buy a 27 or 30 now only to be selling and looking for a 34 or so in a couple years.

I listened to others and bought a hunter 23, within a year I bought the Oday 30, Not quite large enough for live aboard should I someday but my sights and heart are set on a 36 or larger if I'm ever able to break the ties to house ownership.

Take the Hunter 34 for sailing, it will sail very differently than your curtesy boat. Since you took a course in a T10, guess you are in Great Lakes area. why not a T10 ?

Right on about the Great Lakes, (Erie) we loved the T10 but it does not have the cabin we are looking for. We want to be able to comfortably weekend on the boat with a child and the admiral didn't like the size of the interior.

Went from a 20' to a 37'...as pointed out, the additional cost of everything related is/was the biggest concern for us.

Yeah - the T10's 'porta potty' ( aka bucket w/ Lid ) isn't what Flag Officers want.
