      Ed,

      A few months back there were some discussions concerning "Happy Time"
      which is at the upper limit of your length range at 18'2". I feel
      that this boat would be an excellent daysailor, even though the essay
      calls it a cruiser, with the advantage of a small cabin for some
      protection.
