Re: Boating comfort? Or am I just soft?
I have noticed that many of those cruising sub 30 footers spend very little time lounging around aboard their boats when they are anchored near a town. We may go zipping by in the Maserati several times a day and rarely see a dink at these boats. It appears that they come home in the evening to eat and sleep. They also rarely have a companion sailing with them.
However, I may be way off base and these frugal owners of sub 30 foot cruisers just don't have the maintenance we on bigger boats do, so they have much more time to spend ashore having a grand old time!
