Smallest boat you can live with

Not much emphasis in these posts on loads. While there are exceptions, in general loads go up with boat size, which may not be problematic day-to-day but matter greatly when we all inevitably run into weather. Wrestling a jib to the deck because the furler jammed while sailing double-handed in a surprise 30 knts is going to be far easier in a 34' boat than a 44' boat.
