Thanks Jeff, I've always enjoyed reading your posts. Until recently though I've also always had the exact opposite opinion. Lately though as I'm getting more experience I think your posts are whittling me away and I find myself agreeing with you (wow did I really say that?) I pride myself on always challenging my thoughts and beliefs and I think you've converted me.

You sound like you're describing the mini 6.5 until you mentioned narrow beam, A generous beam would give you more form stability, which would equate to less angle of roll right? (Or did I miss the point?)
