Argle! congrats and welcome to the dark side. I think you made a great choice. I saw her many times on YacthWorld. The heater will come in handy and you can more or less sail year round right?
When we bought Waymar I had sailed only daysailors and felt intimidated by the size. (Story goes that my brother in-law, who had never sailed but got the bug through me was pushing to buy. I was suggesting a trailor-sailor for him to learn on - he had never sailed, but we came across Waymar and it was a no brainer).
Anyhow, five years on and we could not be happier. It is easy to sail and you get a pretty quick handle on docking etc
