TJ - it's one of my many failings, that I actually try to stick to the subject. May be genetic, or something

Thanks to all above

It was a great lesson from all, however the topic at hand. Does anyone know about a Stamas 44 designed by Bob Johnson from Island traded? I love the boat, however I would like to know how she sails? I now own a Sadler 34 (British Boat) She has done a transatlantic crossing and is a great boat. I would like to get a centercockpit to sail from Massachusetts to the Carribean to live on during the winters in comfort. I have looked at many, but have found few that are built and live as well as the Stama, only 24 were made. I am most interested in how she sails to weather and how sea kindly she is.

A few PHRF comparisons

I checked ratings for New England (their list is pretty comprehensive) and found the following for a range of cruising-oriented boats of various types:
Stamas 44 132
Hylas 44 108
Hans Christian 41 162
C&C 44 57
Bristol 45.5 117
Morgan 44 144

Faster than some, slower than some but not a slug

If it's a ketch, it won't point very well, but will generally beat a comparable sloop on a reach or a run.

You don't buy a ketch to win round the buoys races, generally. You buy one because the split sail plan allows you to have a more appropriate amount of sail up for given conditions, and the generally smaller sails are easier for a couple to handle. It's great in light air reaching as well if you can rig both an asymmetrical spin and a mizzen staysail...you'll have the same sail area as a sloop 30% larger but spread out on smaller masts.
