Pearson 422

I was looking over a Pearson 422 and it seems like a good, rugged design which would fit my needs. I plan to cruise the East coast of the US and the Carribean and possibly across the pond to Europe as a full time live aboard with one other person and maybe a cat. What is you opinion of the vessel? I especially curious to hear from people who have sailed or owned the 422.

How easily is she single-handed?
How easily can she be balanced on the wind?
How does she preform in a blow, say 50 Kts., and 10 ft. (not that I'll go looking!)?
How comfortable is she to live aboard at sea, at anchor?
How good is access to vital components?
Any glaring problems to look at before purchase, while operating?

Thanks to all in advance for your good advises!
