Great thread! I just purchased my first boat (Hunter22) and am learning to singlehandle. Didn''t even know there was a name for it. I''m curious about the rest of you. Anyone else an ONLY CHILD? I am and feel this contributes to my love of alone time and independence. I sail, drop anchor, swim, practice MOB drills. Love to decorate and "play house" on my boat - even at age 40.
