An 11 foot jump in size

When this thread started I had just sold my 25' boat. I had that one 17 years.

I thought I would go boatless, but it turned out I couldn't take it. I broke down and got a 36' boat this spring. I wanted the biggest boat I could feel comfortable with w/o going to electric winches and bow thrusters. Bigger boats are nice, but the forces involved get really big quickly for a 58 year old guy trying to singlehand. 36' and 14,000 lbs has been just right.
