I own a 14T and love it, but I am looking for a little more speed. Also I want a bigger boat. I have been looking for a 17, it seemed like the best boat for me but now that I am looking around I see that they are expensive. I know they are designed as a solo boat so that was what I looked at naturally.

But now that I am realizing how unlikely finding a 17 is I am starting to look at the 18. I solo most of the time and rarely have help setting up. I know the 18 can be soloed but I want to know if it is more work than I want. I think I would have to get some kind of mast stepping device, also a righting pole of some kind or is it even possible to right the 18 solo with some kind of aid.

I just want honest answers, remember I am young so I do not mind some work and labor in setting up, or in the sailing. Thanks everyone.
