It's a fine boat, but I'd go with the Montgomery 17 instead, which is a better boat IMHO. No pocket cruiser like that is going to be fast.
I'd recommend you get and look at Henkel's The Sailor's Book of Small Cruising Sailboats
, since it covers a lot of boats that might be suitable for you. The book covers 360 boats under 27' LOA and is a reasonably good reference, but isn't quite the reference that it could have been IMHO.

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.
