Jeff's answer on sailing rigs is certainly one of the most complete I've ever read, and is definitely worthy of the publication he intends.

I have a staysail ketch and I would never go back to a sloop, for exactly the reason Jeff suggests -- I really like the more traditional look and feel of the ketch rig. I agree that a sloop is probably the best option for a new sailor.
