He also has a new book called Sailing a Serious Ocean that talks a lot about his boat. His web site is at yayablues-dot-com.
Yes I talked to him briefly via email beforehand and he provided me some good information.

If you're still looking for more info, try John Kretschmer. He owns a Kaufman 47 and gives a brief write-up here. He also has his phone/email on his website if you want to contact him directly.
Yea I had already read his book sailing a serious ocean, he has a chapter pretty much on that boat. It was a good read as well. Flirting with Mermaids is on my amazon wishlist haha! He's a good writer..
