Re: Help choosing a deck-stepped Sailboat
If I had to make one recommendation for your needs it would be the Nightwind 35, with a rating between 135 and 141. These fractionally rigged centerboarder have beautiful interior and sail very well.
Great looking boat... hadn't heard of that one before, Jeff.. only 14 built, apparently so might be a tough find. If only they'd put a little nicer effort into the top portion of the rudder...
