gdrisk is on a distinguished road
It sounds like you are interested in quite a bit of off shore stuff. Have you thought about moving your size requirements up a bit? When I was searching for my first sailboat I was thinking small and manageable and I wound up with a CT-41 ketch! Glad I did because the comfort, stability, and safety of the larger, heavier, full keeled boat was the way to go. I know the dock fees increase by the foot but in the long run there are a lot of bargains out there and for the same price as the Cape Dory 30 you could get into a much more comfortable and seaworthy boat. Just a thought.
