single handing yawls

I''ve been sailing a 40'' yawl for about 5 years or so. 98% of the time i sail solo.
It really isnt about the fact that its 40''.
Its the boat, the setup and the driver.
i''ve owned cat''s, tri''s, ketches, sloops and i find the yawl the best combination. i rarely set the main unless its blowing less than 10. blowin 25+, i set a bit of the genny and the mizzen, she''ll stay well balanced, not on her ear and i never have to leave the cockpit.
