We have friends that did a Circumnav on a Hinckley 49CC as a couple and, though older, the boat was quite nice and solid 30 years after she left the yard.

No offence guys...I understand where you are coming from...but I have a very different experience and have my rig set up for cockpit handling of everything and the boat s big and heavy and gentle in harsh weather. I would rather single-hand on it at sea than anything I have ever owned. Coming into the dock....I want someone on deck!
Ditto except it's a 47
