You are defending the indefensible above. Jeff's scholarly explanation of the shortcomings of the B32 offered reasoned opinions based on experience. Your responses remind of the defense lawyers' tricks, if you don't have much to say, then shout, if you don't have facts on your side, attack the person. Yikes.
The B32 is a sloth. It rates 228, about the same as a Rhodes 19, slower than a Ranger 23. I'd call that painfully slow. You may like it, good for you, but as I suspect experienced boaters say 'amen" to all of Jeff's comments.

Your allegory about the C&C 29's mast weight reflects how confused your commnets are. The 29's mast steps on its keel, the only way anyone ever lifted one is with a hoist, if you ever lowered something with a winch, it was not a mast from a C&C 29.
Yikes again.
