Cool Re: pearson 424 vs. passport 40

Also have my sights on an older passport 40, Wondering if anyone has input on standard rig (52' mast ht) vs tall rig (57' mast ht) actually bridge clearance. Understand short stick was intended for the windy San Francisco bay area and may be underpowered for east coast sailing.

Welcome any input on how big a factor in performance. I do plan on a fully battened main and would look for a cutter rig as off shore sailing is part of the plan. Probably will do a lot of singlehanding!
