scottbr is on a distinguished road
I have an '05 33. I will round up if hit with 20 knot gusts and usually start to furl " reef" at 15 knots. With the main partially furled I still easily hit 6-7 knots, hull speed is 7.2. I like the arch and having the traveller out of the cockpit, but the lines right beside the helm. I have a "skylight" in the bimini and can see the traveller and main sail easily. It's all a matter of getting used to the boat and how it behaves. Furling the main is quick and easy either in or out and for the most part I "single-hand" even with my wife on board.
