Rigs for offshore singlehanded sailing.

Hey guys I have a question about what rig most of you guys prefer. I looked at a 30ft Cape Dory Ketch last weekend and I really loved it. I haven't had a chance to sail it yet but depending on your feedback I may set up a day. Is a ketch to much for someone to singlehand? What are the benefits and drawbacks to this rig? I have also seen Cape Dorys on Yachtworld that were Sloop and Cutter rigs. So what do you prefer and recommend for singlehanded sailing?
