My recommendation to you sir is to give most of your money
to Vanguard for a year or so, and to spend a little on renting
cruising cats of different ilk, and getting a few brokers to take you for a ride on the thoroughbreds........
Data is one thing, seeing it is another.
.......As mentioned above fast is fun, but I believe you will slow it down on a passage
. Fast is hard on you, and the boat. ESPECIALLY single-handing will be even more so. Have you done any single-handing of any distance? Sell your stuff, and take your time on a purchase
. It sounds like more experience will be helpful in your decision on a purchase
. BEST WISHES in finding a boat to serve you well..........i2f
