When I had smaller boats I wouldn't go out in anything over 20. Now I have a Hobie wave and won't take that out in anything under 20 The Hunter I'll take out in anything as it's easy to reef the jib and I have 2 reef points in the main.

I have the smaller sister of a sunfish, the minifish. It's a helluva good time in 25 kts.

But I'm not known for being exactly sane either.
