I trailer sailed a 22’ for many years. Yes it was a PITA but saved $. However, factoring the hassle just to go home after a long day of sailing I don’t think I’d do it again. I eventually put that 22’ in a slip and sailed four to five days a week due to convenience. Sweet sunset sails right after work became possible. After that, the 25/27 and 30 had to be in a slip. The current 34 spends three weeks at anchor and one week at a slip. (Different Situation than you) So IMHO it depends on how much you sail or use the boat. For us, the boat was a part of our lives so lots of time and planning involved the boat. For others, it’s a couple times a month thing. If that were the case, I’d save the $ and just trailer her. As others have said in many threads, a boat is almost always a horrible investment money wise. You pay for convenience, fun, sanity and/or relaxation/ memories with cash or sweat. No way around one or the other. AA
