Re: Small Boat for Solo Sailing

You'll always be better off financially to get what you want up front. To add a roller furler will probably cost you about $800.00 with used stuff, a used furler and a used jib at Minney's will be around $500.00 and then you need line & fairleads and some hardware and it adds up fast.
Spending a little more up front will make a huge difference.
Don't worry about self tacking, you'll get it down really fast anyway and self tacking limits easy fore sail changes.
