Good ta hear yer OK and had (some sorta) fun this late in the season.
Thanks for the reality check! Can I cash it at any bank?
Dude, you're not going to intentionally head out into 20+ knots like I do. You're also probably not going to sail as deep into the winter as I do. The Watkins also take a lot more breeze to get moving than my boat.

Trust me, my recommendation still stands, but you would also benefit from having a little 100% or 90% jib in case you get caught in a blow accidentally.
