The problem with larger boats is the bigger they are the more complicated they become. A trailer sailor that is "in need of a little elbow grease" may take a month to get into primo condition. A 40 foot boat that has been neglected might take 2 years to get ready to sail. Logistics also become easier when I boat is on a trailer. I traveled 5000 miles for my last sailboat.
