Congrats on the new vessel. We're 8 months in on our 29 and are loving it. I've pretty much read everything that I could find,especially Tommays' stuff. I agree, that the hull is very solid. We moved up from a Cal27 and the difference is notable. Not just the headroom, but the whole package. More boat, more better. At least for our conditions in Hawaii. Haven't been on your "bay"(sailing must be great)in 40 years. That Bay Bridge is awesome. Anyway, good luck and post some pics.
