Another thought..

Check the areas you want to sail in. Many of the bays around here are pretty shallow. You may want to consider a swing keel, swing board or dagger board. There are times we are in only a couple feet of water in certain areas. . Water ballast can also be handy if you find yourself grounded. Simple matter of blowing the water out and gives you a few more inches of water under you.

Also, is it good only for bays and daysailing or can you go overnight and/or a few weeks on it. I will be sailing in the Southern Coast of texas in the Gulf of mexico if i can on this boat. Or should i be looking for something bigger?
