Long and narrow. Most of our boats are short and fat.

Indeed and thanks.
I do lean strongly toward long and lean but if I was to change the aspect ratio of my boat I'd make her bigger and fatter. She's 10'6" wide and 30' long but moorage costs are high enough that I'd rather she was 12' wide. Probably wouldn't require any more power. She carries 4000lbs of ballast and perhaps half of that could be taken out with the 12' beam. However the added beam may bring about a snap roll that would require even more ballast. Hard to say. But it's sad that moorage is so high that I wish for a fatter boat. Thinking about it makes me wish I was back in Alaska where I had a 37' slip w power, water and big beefy bull rails for $570 a year.

There are always trade-offs.
This Tug conversion "Midnight Sun" is a good example of no compromise.

Midnight Sun was a fishboat, never a tug. Anyway, a spectacular boat.

Maybe not. More and more marinas are adding the footprint of a boat into the slip fee calculation formula these days. One motivation for doing this is that the increased width of many makes of sailboats has reached the point where the marina can't put two of them side by side in a slip. So if you kept the length of your boat the same but added a foot and a half or two feet to the width, your moorage cost would likely be somewhat to a lot more than it is now depending on which marina you were in. I don't know if La Conner has started doing this yet, but if they haven't I won't be surprised if they soon change to this practice. Everyone else seems to be.

Hi Janice... What speed do you cruise and what is your mpg. Must be very economical. I'd not realized size of your boat prior to the above post.

As an interest... in 1948 23' Chris Craft Express, with parents in 40's and three boys (2, 4, 10 yrs old), we cruised New England inland as well as up and down the coast for weeks on end during summers of 1950's. I well recall what fun a 23' boat can be when it's set-up correctly. Dad was a master at boat interior layout with all sorts of nifty designed items that were utilized in many ways to make that 23 footer comfortably accommodate all five of us.

As we boys grew... so did boat sizes. eventually it was a 37' raised deck, flying bridge, sport fish beauty that dad and I completely refinished over a period of several years. Turned her into an enclosed salon family boat! What fun!!

Happy Boating Daze! - Art
