Just scared of the rudder, and dont feel like carrying a spare rudder I can hang off the back. I dont want the boat so big I cant put electric drive so I am limited to around 12000 displacement. was thinking the 322 might work but have concerns about the rudder not having any protection. but i come from a hobie background where we sailed right up on the beach at full speed, dousing the sails only at the last second to keep from flipping. also looking at the cal 33.
A long time ago, my mother said something about not being able to sleep at night worrying about me. I told her, "Don't be foolish, I don't skydive at night."

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face...You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
Eleanor Roosevelt
