7 Ft! I'd be bouncing off the headliner

in my boat as there is no room between the top of my noggin' and the headliner to build any velocity. That's not to say I don't bounce my head
off things fairly often
To the OP, I think the 390/393 is fine for what you suggest. Be sure she's up to snuff, and she'll get you there just fine. EVERY sailboat is a list of floating compromises. Understand the list of compromises you've selected, and hopefully you'll learn to love them.
