Rob, you may have custody problems with a boat, even a houseboat, if the wife thinks about the kids going overboard into ice water with or without PFDs. What you can sail single-handed depends on what/how you can sail and you'll probably have to rerig the boat for it. A pilothouse is nice for space--but more space means harder to heat and way fewer boats to look at.

FWIW, Before you blow the bank on a boat, just make sure custody of the kids on the boat isn't going to become a killer.

Eryka --- What's your experience with your engine in Annapolis? Is it cold enough on the Chesapeake / Potomac to be concerned about freezing the block?

No worries... it is just that as your own thread, you'll generally get much better and more specific replies, and not clutter this thread with unrelated ones.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
