Jeff,

Thanks so much for your very excellent and thorough review. I had no idea I would get such insightful (and instant) input.

As a 51 year old spring chicken I can''t help but be concerned at times about the long-term ability to handle the foredeck work...especially since much of the time it will be just me while my wife drives. This particular boat has a 150% genoa and a 110% genoa, both of which are cut for roller furling with foam luff pads, which I think will be a huge help in this department. YOUR THOUGHTS?

Also on board are an asymetrical cruising spinaker (with sock) and a hanked on storm jib.

I''m probably more concerned about the ride, as you so fully developed. I''m afraid my wife would be hurling on the downhill runs.

I''m still very intrigued...you know how it is when you have a boat this beautiful in your sights at long last. I promise to keep an open mind though.

Thanks again
