From reading this thread, I feel that you did very well; learned some valuable lessons and have received excellent advice from the other posters.

My only comments are that a good reefing system is worth its weight in gold. Second, when you start thinking about putting in a reef, it's time to actually do it. Finally, it is a lot easier to shake out an unnecessary reef than it is to put in a reef in bad conditions.
