I've never even been on a boat less than 33' so just can not understand people looking to move up to say a 30' boat. What does one do on a 30' that they couldn't on a 27' one?

It's called 2 footitis, and it should be obvious what a difference several feet can make. You yourself added 4 feet, and what difference did it make for you?

You can store more stuff. You may get an extra berth, or a larger cockpit. A couple of feet can make one hell of a difference in your comfort, or other needs.......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves
