    Yes, at about 10 mph of wind I will reef. I was out in 15+ with all sail up and a puff blew me over.

When I told Jim Michalak that I was sewing in an extra row of reef points, he thought I would never use them, but over the years, I've sailed the boat reefed more often than not and have used both reefs often. On the other hand, I happen to like sailing in a lot of wind.

I will consider trade for light family trailer sailer with motor (around 1000lb - e.g. Bolger, Michalak, Welsford, WW Potter) in good condition and may even trade my Michalak AF3 for the right boat. I plan to do weekend and longer sleep-aboard cruises with two people (sometimes three).
