puddinlegs is on a distinguished road
that said Jeff, many an old IOR boat is equipped with roller furling and make great cruisers. One could go a step further and do detachable inner head stay to to hoist a #3 on hanks with a set of reef points on. 2 headsails, a spinnaker (maybe even an assy for simplicity), and a main. Looking at the deck, I'm sure one could make or have a very nice little dodger made. Of course as you say, after all that upgrading and not, one could find a T27 or maybe even a Yankee 30.
