sailingguy123 is on a distinguished road
As far as storage goes, I am going to leave her at a marina in Turkey until next summer. The only other model I thought about was the First 40.7 but I worry about the traveller being in the middle of the cockpit and getting in the way of the people sitting in the cockpit. Also, the First is a bit cramped down below and lacks the water storage I would need for a long trip. Furthermore, I may be sailing with only one other person and would like to have the ease of a furling mainsail rather than having to deal with the large sails of the 40.7. Can anyone who has the 40.7 comment on how hard it is to sail with two people?
