Yes. Looking at two almost identical boats (same hull, roughly same features). One has a ketch rig, the other a sloop. Will be using it only for cruising. No need for speed. No racing. Will be singlehanding most of the time. Need to be able to handle wide range of conditions (Baltic and North Sea).
