As I thought, size doesn't matter (even if my SO disagrees)
It's all about what you do with what you got....IMHO.
To quote a song... "It ain't the meat, its the motion that gets me hot"....
Translation: It ain't the boat, its you ability to make it sail that makes it hot.
Never been offshore, hope to one day. Doesn't matter really to me today. What I know is there are a bunch of folks on this board doing today what I can only dream about. Maybe when I retire in 15 years, I'll get me that "blue water" boat.. whatever that is. But until then, I plan to learn, sail, ask for advice (something that is not natural for an engineer), and have a great time.
Guess the Systems Engineer in me is showing, I could care less about one specific detail, but more about how the total system works (crew, boat, weather, etc).
Just my $0.02 discounted however you like....
