So I bought a 79 boat and the way it came was a fiberglass slider forward, with a wooden piece aft. If I slide them as forward as I can, I can barely slide into the cabin. The wooden piece just sits on the edges so I have taken it out when sailing and placed it inside the cabin.

Would you recommend for use on Long Island sound? I am more concerned with having enough power than I am weight for racing. My gut tells me to get more but being new to the boat, I don't know what the appropriate range is in terms of horsepower.
