Re: Small Keelboat for Solo sailing
I use a tiller pilot on my 25, but I single handed before I had that...
Like others said, it's really not the size of the boat, its how it's rigged. For me, the biggest advantage was the tiller pilot, so long as I have water, I can lock in a course, and go fiddle with sails/trim/whatever. Tiller pilot, best $400 I ever spent.
If you plan to launch/retrieve from trailer solo, then I strongly suggest you consider how easily you can raise/lower a boat mast. I'm thinking through how to do what I did with my 22, now on my 25. I am sure I'll come up with something though. Then I'll be solo launching this thing too.
