How tender is an Erickson 38?

As we look to replace our recently sold Pearson 33-2, the Admiral has emphasized that the next boat has to be "stiff". A tender boat significantly lessens her ease on board.

On my P33-2 I put a first reef in at about 18 knots and there was no weather helm and it stayed at 15 degrees.

Any comments or experience with the Erickson 38 would be greatly appreciated.

I can be reached off line, if that is you preferred way at:

Thank you
