Two quick questions that don't have any definitive answer.
I've just started living on my boat and I sail it solo. I couldn't imagine living on a boat much smaller and it's only hassles involved in trading up, the need to redo all the upgrades I've been doing and money
which is why I would not go bigger.
Other people will suggest a boat size for two that is significantly smaller than what I have.
The fact is, regardless of years of experience some people will feel confident and comfortable with a size that others would not.
You need to get out and sail and after sailing on training boats and crewing
on other peoples boats, you will get the feel for what size fits you best.
Don't listen to what size anyone says until you have enough experience to be able to rationalise other people's arguments and make your own judgement.
FWI I live on 40ft and would consider 50 for myself, but that's just me.
