Re: Beginner going live abroad, need a tad help...

Here's a very good source of info for the small boat wanderer in training

Amazon.com: Twenty Small Sailboats to Take You Anywhere (9780939837328): John Vigor: Books

And his advice on how to set it up. He's been there, done that

Amazon.com: john vigor: Books

good luck and I heartily recommend the full keel and any Cape Dory. My 25D Cape Dory has been across the Pacific. Well, NOT mine, but another 25D.

The designer, Carl Alberg, is/was Swedish and knew how to design boats for the ocean, not the docks. They are very comfortable in a seaway and heave to and de-power with ease.

best wishes and good luck on your venture.
