Stinkpotter takes to Sailing

I''m a lifetime power boater(45+years) and converted sailor for two years. My experience is two years of day sails in the Atlantic-solo in a Merit-25. I don''t presume to know very much about sailing except that I love to sail (mostly alone because my stinkpot friends can''t figure it or me out) I want to go to 35'' and be able to sail North to NY and south to Cape May, for now at least. My requirements are: safety, reliability,ease of handling especially solo, resale value, classic looks. I''m not interested in racing but I''m coming from a Merit-25 So I''m used to a boat that will turn when I want to turn and I want to get home in time for dinner. The boats that have been suggested are: Sabre, Ericson,Tartan, and Pearson. I welcome the suggestions of all you sailing experts.

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.
