It should be a good "near-coastal" boat for you if the survey checks out. For what you're describing, she should be fine. Not fast, but a conservative design with few bad habits and a good all-round weekender or mini-cruiser, small enough to singlehand once you get the experience, and big enough to live on for a few days.
Also, around the Cape, you don't really want to draw over 4' so you can get into most of the harbors. So I think you've made a good pick.
