What about a Morgan OI?

For someone with " little or no sailing experience", I can think of no worse choice than an OI41 if that person actually wants to learn to sail. If a person wants to learn to sail, then they should start with something smaller and more responsive where they can actually feel what is going on without hurting themselves. Then again, if they really don''t care about learning to sail, they should just buy a power boat rather than experience the frustration of trying to learn to sail on a boat with the poor (for learning purposes) sailing characteristics of an OI41 before leaving the sport in disgust.
