Re: Small Boat for Solo Sailing
We had a Rhodes 22 that had a centerboard, imf and a roller furling genoa. It can easily be single handed. You can find used ones with all those features. The other thing to look for is a pop top. There isn't a lot of headroom in any boat this size and this adds a lot in the main part of the cabin.
Most of these boats also have a stove, a sink and a head, which makes overnighting more comfortable - as do the filler boards you can put in the cockpit if you want to sleep there instead of inside. It's a big bed out there, and you can get an enclosure that turns it into a big tent.
