is another's world cruiser but all of the trailer sailer type boats are so lightly built ... the fact that the question was asked at all suggests a skipper
not ready for more than a daysail.
Welcome Bay Sailer. As you've doubtless learned by now, even with that 9.9, it's tough to keep the prop in the water when it gets rough.
