The Ideal Pocket Cruiser

"As I pulled up the anchor that blustery morning, I realized that there had to be a better way. Somewhere there was a boat within our budget that had standing head room, a small head, a gimbaled stove, water and storage for 10 days, and comfortable sleeping quarters. Another factor I wanted was the ability to sail safely offshore. For me, this meant a fixed (lead) keel, solid construction, smallish cockpit, and an inboard engine. However, I needed something nimble enough to single hand. Maintenance would also be a factor, as the boat would spend it's life in the water rather than on a trailer."
