Welcome aboard! I've gained a ton from this forum, and I'm sure you will have the same results. I've asked questions ranging from engine parts to alternative fuels for my cabin lantern, and gotten great results. Happy Thanksgiving as well!

Aloha Hubert,
Welcome aboard and Happy Thanksgiving!! If you get used to using this forum you can do searches by subject for all your questions.
Our Club has two Folkboats and I think a larger version, i. e. a 32-36 of them in a cutter rig with a diesel engine would be pretty much ideal for cruising. I think the Contessa is about that design and right size.
Kind regards,
JohnL
