The month of May was spent flying between Raleigh and Knoxville for work. Spare time was spent searching CraigsList and a number of “Yacht Broker” websites looking for the boat that would call my name.
I visited the Concord Yacht Club in Knoxville and looked at a Sabre 28 whose listing has since been removed.
For those that are reading this and have never been aboard a sailboat, the difference in the amount of interior space available on a 27' boat and that available on a 40' boat is incredible. Remember that when a boat gets longer, the available beam (width) is also increased.
