the J-30 will sail like a laser with just the main up, out sail and out point all the other boats suggested. Simple to work on, great resale value and is 11.25 feet wide. I raced mine to Hawaii last year. One survived Fastnet 1979.
Check them out.
The only reason that J-boat survived the Force 10 storm in the 79 Fastnet was that it was sailed by a Texan!

Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
