Advice for first boat

I appreciate your input on what to get. I like the J24 but I want to be able to single hand it if necessary.

Does anyone know the approximate drafts for odays, pearsons, or catalinas. I have problems with drafts because my "deep water dock" is located in 14'' of water. Plenty of water for anything except the bad part is that there is incredible shoaling just outside the breakwaters for about a mile offshore. I need to keep the draft to under 5'' or I have to watch very carefully where I sail.
