  1. Thanks all. A lot of good food for thought.
  2. Nope. I have a Catalina 22 which I greatly enjoy lake sailing. 10 years ago I was actually in gale conditions in my WW Potter 15 for about 5 min :). I’m a n00b that is slowly upgrading and am gathering information to make (hopefully) good choices...
  3. I’m trying to get an idea for how much length/displacement plays a part in safety. I have been doing a lot of reading but haven’t been able to get a feel for this yet. I would be very interested in peoples thoughts. With this in mind, here is a hypothetical question: Assuming you found yourself off shore in a gale. Which boat would you rather be in? A small Full Keel boat (e.g. Pacific Seacraft Dana 24/Orion 27) or midsized Fin Keel (Beneteau 35ish)?
