I doubt he much cares, as the post you're replying to is SIX years old. Please check the dates before reviving a dead thread. Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet.

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.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
