O God not again.

Ok so I got a fun one for ya. I have put my heart and soul into rfinishing and outfitting my Wharram pahi 42 catamaran. I think I would like to sell her while in good condition and because I have found a new love, Healing. I never raced before untill a two week stop over in New Orleans I fell in love with it. I will continue to cruise but would like to try my hand at monohulling. I want somthing that actually sails well. that I can race in the ocean and continue to cruise on. Under 100k or just over. Performance and ocean going ability are my first priority. I also would like a second cabin or quarter birth will be fine. I have been interested in older swans and pacific seacraft 37. I would love some suggestions. this will be my first monohull so be nice. It'll be hard to go from cruising at 9 to 12 knots but I am young and want to try as many things as possible. also I know the ps and the swan are different boats but I was told the PS is a good performing boat. Also is there drawbacks from having a performance boat like the swan, besides not having 8 queen sized beds and a dingy garage? Just a little humor.

Yep, nothing quite like the boat heeling over, hardening up and getting in the groove to put a smile on yer mug.

Finally a recovering multiholic!!! Welcome back to the land of sanity.

Someone else pointed this boat out to me (forgot who), but I have fallen in love with the Palmer Johnson New York 40. I think it might fit what you are looking for and they are beautiful to boot.

Nah, we don't need to hold an intervention... the first week of living on his ear will turn him back to the darkside.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
