Anything much under 30' it gets a little more difficult to store enough food, water, tools, etc for weeks. Not impossible but more difficult.

If you're going 30' probably need a bare minimum of 20 HP. A little more would be better. Inboard diesel is the preferred option.
Thanks for the info. I am not in a hurry so i can wait til the right one comes along.
