Tom I understand the sentiment. But you should ask yourself of how much usage you will get from the the bigger saw. Not trying to be the lecturer here, simply making an observation. I've found so far that my resaw needs have been reasonably handled by the lumber yard and at a lower price than a large bandsaw. On the other hand, my smaller WEN 10 inch bandsaw has met my needs for everything else I've had to do.
On the other hand, if you have the means and the place to put one, and enough intended usage, why not. Wishy washy, perhaps, but everybody's situation is different.
For me practicality and a desire to stay focused on the boat prevented me from getting involved in building a special shop and buying a lot of expensive power tools that I knew I would likely only use for the boat.
