mamasis,

I have a Kirby 27 (Kirby 8M for 8 meters, or 27 feet). They were built in Quebec, Canada. This boat was designed by Bruce Kirby. I've had this boat for 5 years now and it is great. It's hull speed is 6.5 knots but I have got it up to 8 knots a few times under sail. It handles very well in my opinion, but it is my first and only sailboat. I have the original pamphlet if you are interested.

Marc
