I've only been on your boat's smaller cousin, a 32' Allied Seawind ketch. In NY Harbor we hove to with only jib and jigger and had lunch.
The fellow that bought her sailed her from NY down to the Keys single handed where he sold her. I liked the boat but but the owner claimed he wanted a boat that would point higher and sail faster. I'm not sure if the bigger Allied Princess shares the same sailing characteristics. Great boat for going downwind though and the ketch rig offers more sail combinations then a standard sloop.
Your metal working skills should come in very handy.
