I've been thinking about moving up from the Beneteau, Bavaria, Catalina, Jeanneau sort of world and moving into the Sabre, Hallberg-Rassy, Morris, Alden sort of world. As I look around everyone advises me that, as long as I'm switching boats, I should also get a bigger boat. The added storage, dock fees, and other incrementally larger costs are not much of a problem, but I wonder about going too big. If I'm willing to trust (big IF here) the functionality of bow thruster, windless, and power winches, should I have no concern about getting into a 42' to 45' boat? Anyone care to share their regrets for having too much boat? My current boat is 36'. The 40' boats don't scare me, but 45' is starting to look pretty big.
