still dreaming (Guest)


I'm dreaming about cruising. I am currently just learning to sail at long beach California and enjoying it. I don't own a boat yet, and so far I've sailed on smaller boats a hunter 23 and a (something else) 25 feet.

I find myself reading a lot on the internet about cruising, and I feel myself slowly moving in the direction of wanting to become a real sailor with my own boat.

I'm imagining sailing up to seattle and seeing killer whales, or down to Panama and into the Carribbean, and possibly much further. I could see myself sailing with one or two family members or friends, or maybe finding an adventurous partner for longer voyages, and possibly alone on short trips.

So my question is this, if at some point I decided to buy a westsail boat and money were not a problem, what would be the advantages and disadvantages of a 32 versus a 42?
