Reliance 44 ketch?

Doug , I know this is six months since your query but I will answer with hopes that you will give me feed back on what you have found out. I have a 1984 Reliance Cutter rigged sloop. I have brand new Harkin Roller Furler foresail and staysail and a wonderful brand new triple reefing system on the main . Every thing or damn near everything can be handled from cockpit. It is as big a boat that I know of that is really set up for single or very short handed sailing . I have ICOM 710 SSB with Sailmail modem and laptop, Autohelm 7000 , VHS , A very sturdy Zodiac w/10 hp Johnson that may be a dang too much dingy. I have installed a 75watt Siemans Solar panel which works wonders . I have a refrigerator and Freezer that work on cold plates that reguire running the 76 HP Yanmar w/supercharger one hour a day . I have 300 gal of fresh water, and 100 gal of fuel . I figure the boat is worth somewhere in the 105-120 K area . It really is a wonderful fast and very strong boat .
