My next boat will likely be approximately the same length, but will definitely WEIGH less. My boat is 41feet, but weighs as much as some 50' boats. That makes her gear as large, expensive, and as hard to handle as a 50' will all the interior and waterline benefits of a 41'. Hmmm....

Of course I chose it that way, all of the negatives are in exchange for a rediculously overbuilt hull. Considering my last boat had the hull crack in a storm and try and sink on me, only to again have the hull fail in the yard I wanted an overbuilt hull. :-)

Next boat will weight less, as it won't be for offshore, but the current size is just fine.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
