Hi Brent,
I do the majority of cruising on my own. My wife enjoys cruising when the weather and seas are great, but that only works out to about 25% of the time. Lots of fair weather sailers but once the water gets a little rough, many want to head back in.

I prefer to go solo, but it takes a bit more preparation. I ensure I have a good jackline setup with tether and harness to keep me on board when the weather is rough. Docking takes a bit more thought and planning.

With a 50 foot boat, docking would certainly be a challenge. Have you considered trading down to something a little more manageable on your own?
