All good advice, so generally a good stable boat for two people is fairly heavy to manoever on the slip and hard standing by one. Watch sail area and make sure boat has sufficient additional boyancy, including a mast head bag, to help in any capsize issues.

That probably sums it up nicely  Smile I'd add that the buoyancy must be built in and that you can have a smaller suit of sails than the standard 'racing rig' (I used to use a suit of Firefly sails on an Enterprise for teachingg my sons).
