Owned many power boats over the years and have sailed to most of the Hawaiian islands with a sailing club on a 52' tri. But now it's time to buy my own... What would be the best Mono-hull boat size, brand/rigging set up to do a lot of singlehanded sailing between the islands? The waters in the channels here can get pretty nasty and our average winds are 15-25 knots everyday. So she must be solid! I live on oahu
but need to escape the city on the weekend and get back to paradise...
of $80-100k. How big? 29' to small or 40' to big.
Need some expert advise as I certainly consider myself a novice
sailor at best.
