The wife and I are finally looking to get out of the daysailer and into a bluewater cruiser. She's 5'5". Not so much of a problem. Me... 6'7" and over 300 lbs. I can see a wee challenge ahead. I'm wondering which classic plastic boats would be best for me to look at. I'm thinking full, long keel
and maybe ketch
rigged. I'm fond of the Whitby 42, the Morgan
OI-41,51 and perhaps an Islander Freeport
. But, not being financially flush enough to try each one on for size, I'm turning to the community.
Hit me with your best advice !
