Well davidpm I agree with everything you said. That's another reason for the amel it's a ketch rig. So it will be easier than a sloop right of the bat. Also its sail size is alittle smaller than some of the boats ive looked at in the 50 to 55 ft range. Im planning on having atleast 1 crew be seasick and if one gets injured I can endure solo for about 72 hrs with no sleep is what ive found out over the yrs. So I should be good. But im trying to look at this from every angle. Hence the ketch rig and a boat that is designed for single handed sailing. Also im having the other to get asa certified just incase I get severly injured I know they can manage without my help. Odds are that wont happen however its worth it to me to make sure if it does we will be ok.
