hunter vs beneteau

I've been sailing a 281 for about 4 years and love it. I almost exclusively single had and it is the perfect boat for that. One advantage that I have (for ease of single handing) is in-mast furling. With the unlimited sail sizes I can achieve, I sail this light (6000#) boat in anything under 40 kts. The boat is tender and with a conventional main sail, you'll probably want to reef at about 15kts but the boat is stable and really fun.
