Why would bigger be considered better? Doesn't it make a difference how many people will be on it? We recently went from a 22 foot to a 37 foot and I'm a little concerned about being able to single
hand the 37. My wife and I can sail it ok as a team, I'm not worried about that. But it remains to be seen if we'll be able to each sail it by ourselves if one of us gets sick or something when we're on a passage
I think I personally prefer a smaller boat, as long as it has enough room for the number of people on it.
I noticed other people talking about the tiller vs wheel
. Our old boat had a tiller. The new one has a wheel
. I think I prefer a tiller too. It's a lot simpler and does not take up so much room in the cockpit
