I don't think "because of covid" covers the why? part very well.

Why? Why not a slightly bigger or more comfortable boat?

Good question. I find every now and then sailing needs to be more than a leisurely cruise. I crave a challenge. Currently that's single handing a 63 ft schooner on a winter cruise of northland ( gybing from a 3 sail reach to a 3 sail reach in 30 to 35 kn at Cape Karikari was a highlight).

But I am also fascinated by small boats. I like the idea of a challenging expedition in one of John Welsford s little boats. I got excited a month or so back when I met a kiwi guy who had done the Everglades Challenge in a Dovekie.

So much to do and so little time.
