That all makes sense. I am not sure that this will ever make a good offshore boat. They were designed for big crews and lots of sail changes but I suppose you will sort some of that out over time. I live and sail out of Annapolis and would enjoy seeing your boat when you get her up here and would be glad to make suggestions if you would like. You can email me directly.
