Instead of a cutter rig, I would recommend a sloop rig, which could be fitted with a self-tacking jib. A hoyt jib boom or similar setup is not possible on a cutter rigged boat for the main headsail, since the inner forestay would be in the way.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
