Re: Singlehanding a 41' Hunter DS?

networker,
If money is no object then get a Jeanneau 41DS with "dock and go". Skip the Hunter. While docking you'll embarrass every old salt within a week.

Besides; what's a few dings in the learning process.

ASA 101-104; then hire a local to go out with you to practice and in a month or two you will have it down. You'll find plenty of good sailors to go out on a new boat.

I'd say go for it!! Don't let the naysayers scare you away. 40' is just right. Especially on a modern boat.
