Uh, well, thanks, Jeff. No need to get pissy, I never said, or even implied, that I was a "very skilled single-hander". In fact, just to dispel any misgivings, I have sailed 6 times on a lake for a around 4 or 5 hours in a '68 Coronado 25. That's it! That is the extent of my single-handing experience.
I would have thought that my in-experience is obvious since I'm on here asking the the questions I'm asking.
But perhaps I'm misreading your post and you meant no implication of a 'pretense of skills' on my part. If I implied - or you somehow inferred - that I have the experience to know sailboats and their suitability for any given sailing situation, then, just to sharpen the tip of my point to a refined, unmistakeable, hypodermic injection instrument even further - syringetically speaking - let me say this: No Experience Here To Speak Of.
But I do thank you for your input, it is very helpful. So much so that I feel much more informed now about my decision on the particular boat I'm looking at after reading your post. You've really have been a great help, you advice is quite salient and seems to make very good sense.
I'll have to weigh everything and figure the hell out what to do. Dammit!
