Re: Passport 41

It is possible to put a wind vane on a sugar scoop transom. Monitor makes one and it pivots out of the way when the boat is at anchor. This allows access to the sugar scoop for swimming and dinghy access. I have seen this on a Caliber 40 LRC.
It is possible to convert most sloops to a cutter rig with a solent stay. There is a good article on this modification in the current Sail Magazine. It is removable.

Re: Passport 41

I second the idea of a Solent stay. Makes a great deal of sense to me. Our boat has a removable inner stay that I can attach a staysail or storm jib too. Staysail is rarely used, the storm jib never been used. Having a tall, heavy 90% jib ready to pull out would be very handy even if it meant that tacking the big jib would be a problem. Not sure that having the Solent stay removable would be a big help. You need to put it and its sail somewhere.

Garhauer makes a nice pole which you can put the wind genrator or which is made for boats with sugar scoop transoms. Comes with detachable engine hoist.

Re: Passport 41

The passport 41 was a later iteration of the 40 and I believe that less boats were made to this design. The major difference is the stern which has already been discussed.

Regarding putting a wind vane on this type of stern, it has been done to a 41 before so I would not expect it to be a problem. You can see one example here Scanmar International.

I have never been fortunate enough to actually be underway on one but sailing next to them and being aboard at the dock, I have really been impressed. While you can't get your heart set on one boat or model (especially if there were not many made), I would definitely keep this on my list of boats to look at given your criteria.
