Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Welcome aboard!
The Solara does have a hitch, it's just that the towing capacity is only 2000 lbs, which is somewhat limiting. So even if I end up with something like a laser, I'd plan to tow it.

It means he's the guy that gets blamed when they can't figure out the answer to a question a Catalina 400 owner has...

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.

I write a quarterly in Mainsheet on the 400, mostly involving technical issues, boat improvements, and modifications. I am not an employee of Catalina. I am an owner that helps support the association.

Somewhat limiting, but there are a lot of choices under 2000 lbs. My 17' pocket cruiser comes in around 1500 with boat and trailer and I have some hard ballast and a swing keel. There are a lot of day sailors (like the DaySailor) that come in closer to 1000 and still have lots of room and better sailing performance. My point is mostly that if cruising is what draws you to sailing, a racer (most of the board boats are racers) with its lack of creature comforts is likely to be a stage you go through rather quickly. Even if the comfort is just sitting on a bench with your feet down in front of you and some semblance of a backrest behind you.
