Hardin 45

I hear complaints about how slow the Hardin is. In light winds, yeah, but when you get 20 kts of wind, she moves quite well. Returning from Belize, CA., to SW Florida, we had 22 kts aft the beam, and with the gulf stream at approx. 4 kts, we were making 10 - 12 Kts SOG. Also, on the trip down in April, we had to reef to keep the hull speed down. That was in about 25 kts. She rides real well. Got caught in 30 - 35 kts with 10 -12 ft. seas coming back from the Keys, and never felt threatened. QUESTION ?? Has anyone had to replace one of the large forward saloon windows?
