We live aboard our 1997 Caliber 40lrc in Portland, Maine. We are preparing for our big cruise in a couple of years.

We have a shelf/microwave built over the sink and love it. The nav station is pretty useless although I have yet to see one big enough in any boat to spread a chart out on. I use the salon table for that.

We feel the boat does great in light air. We placed 3rd in a long distance race last year in light air. We finished the 100nm mile just a few minutes behind a C&C 35 and an Ericson 34. You need to have a slab reef main with a decent roach, sails in good condition and proper trim.
