I just ask that you compile the data collected here (as you will do anyway) and provide it back to this community. Only seems fair to the community that you’re mining for the raw information.

Re: What boat do you live on?

The average boat size is a little surprising to me. I would have put the average in the upper 30's/low 40's. I guess our boats have grown over the years... Or, bigger boat folks spend more time on the internet?

I'm surprised how often I'm the smaller boat, I was looking at a Taswell 56 next to me this morning, mine shrunk overnight.... relativity is a crazy thing.

I know just what you mean. When we bought Rocket Science, she seemed HUGE (the prior boat was a 43), now, it feels pretty normal, and we notice all the bigger boats around us. Although, we get stuck in with powerboats more often these days. But, still, perspective shifts for sure.

I might have just lowered the average boat length. Maybe the average IQ as well.

My apologies, that was what I just said, but I suppose it wasn't too clear.
