Hard to imagine someone who's sailed Lasers and dinghies finding any keelboat 'too tender'...

I think it would be a good boat to start with, though by today's standard practice may be on the small side. Seems today's 'starters' are often 30'+.

So did you get any info from Bob? Trying to figure out S.A./Disp.
