Thanks again for the tips.

You bet. In mentioning "downsizing," you seem to be comparing a boat to a house or apartment - very problematic! :-) - not the same beast at all, as you must pay for, maintain, dock and navigate the boat. Just a friendly caution from one who's cruised a 40 footer! Yes, a boat is always too small when you are living on it and too big when you are paying for it!
Good luck.
