Also part of the reason I'm trying to go much larger is not only the stability that size and weight brings, I'm also looking for comfort, and room to move around. In the 2859, or the 3488 everybody tends to congragate near the helm and holds on, waiting to "get there" With the larger boar I think that the natural anxiety that going from a fast boat to a slow one could generate will be alleviated.

Instead of holding on, folks could have a snack, look at the scenery, have a discussion without yelling, even watch a movie, read a book or play with the dog if they were so inclined. The trip will become enjoyable, not just the destination.

Yes, yes, yes.* Unless it is an awful, choppy day... people feel comfortable walking about the boat, sitting here, sitting there.* Hanging out, not hanging on...

I've posted this photo before... everyone was kicked back, enjoying the journey as we headed to a brunch event.*
