Hi Paul,

Your boat is not unknown around here (neither your previous 42) Do you mind to give some impressions about those boats and comparing them with your previous boat in what regards speed sea motion and comfort?

If you don't mind maybe you can post that on this thread:

Interesting Sailboats

that is the thread were new boats are discussed. In fact somewhere in that long thread there are references and posts about several Southerlies, including the 42 and the 49. It is also a popular thread with about 1000 hits a day.
