East coast of Newfoundland

Yes, I have owned the Hughes 26 for one year now and have sailed her in Newfoundland waters this past summer. My reason for the initial post was to gather some information from others familiar with the boat. From my searches there are no owner groups, etc. The boat will be sailed in some pretty challenging conditions at times. Newfoundland's coastline is quite rugged and we often see many foggy and windy days. The seas can kick up quite a fuss at times often being steep and confused. I'm used to smaller boats and this is my first sailboat. Knowing how others view the Hughes 26 could both be insightful and interesting.
