svsirius is on a distinguished road
So to give that perspective my ex Frers 36 a racer cruiser rated 90. That means for every mile sailed I owed the Tayana 37 80 seconds or so... or it was about half as fast.

My current 47 has about the same rating 96 as the Frers did even though it's 3x as heavy but does have a much longer waterline. The difference is the Frers could accelerate out of tacks and gibes quickly the Moody not so, however in rougher condition where the Frers would be bouncing around and not so much fun, it's a great sailing day on the Moody.
