Try this Baba 30 that was recently listed here on Lake Michigan. Not sure if she's right for fishing and crossing the bar, but bluewater sailors call her Mrs. And Bob knows her well.

What about a Macgregor 26. She can do 20 knots under power- you could run a bar:

Casey:
That is brilliant!

Floyd can call the dealer and ask "How fast does it go? and they will have an answer.
It will probably be something like, "Really fast."

Wow, from a Tartan 41 to a Baba 30 when the right answer is a Spork.
My dad used to say "a camel is a horse as designed by a committee".

Wow, I had no idea this was builder-supplied equipment! It must be a powerboat thing, since I see lots and lots of them on the adverts for go-fast boats.

Would you have some pictures to show me the difference between marginal and more fully-featured "wind lasses"?

I do perfectly understand that, in general, it's never a good idea to try to save money on the "wind lasses", and this is a classic case of "if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford one".
