Stepping up to a new boat Thread...
I've had a Siren 17, which i sailed in various weather. I didnt have it long, i sold it, due to having dreams of a bigger boat. I sailed in a small craft advisory on the Chesapeake, on my first outing. I've sailed in the night of the fall. Im a new sailor no doubt, but im not afraid or unnerved by new challenges.
I would like to step up to a Catalina 22. This boat, i think i would keep in a slip at my local marina. There is something intimidating about having my boat tied off in the water 24 hours a day. Its new, uncomfortable, thinking about other people having their boat tied up to me, a newbie, and id have to dock mine after every outing.
Am i crazy to worry about leaving trailer sailing, for docking a boat?
