wow that is something, I would have guessed alot of water in your cockpit, quit surprised and glad to hear this.

you know a british gentlmen (sailboa engener) convinced me to keep this boat, he explained in terms I did not fully understand all about her desing and why never go by numbers on some fictive calculator. at one point I got convinced she was an unconfortable healer, quite the uposite in reality.

no offence but this man has said that this boat is comparable to an alberg 29 in roughed seas, wich really suprised me.
