PCB&F now recommend beefing up the scantlings if one plans on taking
longer trips, like to the Bahamas, or up to Nova Scotia. So you could
be right about that. Also they recommend the Navigator conversion
which is a lot more work!
Then it would depend on the level of finish you want. There is a
considerable amount more sanding and painting on a Long Micro. It is
after all - about 30% bigger altogether.
