I would never shop at Costco. The paper towels won't fit into my sports car!

SS Delphine, Horace Dodge's personal yacht, is still seaworthy and providing voyages for lucky bastards.

I would think that just 2 people any thing under 30' would be more than adequate.

But fresh water capacity and storage would be my bigger concern.

When I was a younger man I'd sail with friends up and down the coast out of Santa Monica all the time in a Pearson 33-4. It was fine for 4 people for about a week at a time - you had to be inventive with water storage, but it wasn't a big deal. Also the chemical toilet wasn't really up to that duty but when you have water all around you that's not such a big deal.

These days my dream is to get a 35 to 40 foot or so trawler type motor yacht or converted fishing boat in another few years (or decades) when I'm well heeled enough to afford the permanent slip space. Nothing serious blue water, but enough to get up and down the West Coast, or even go through Panama and around to the East if I wanted.
