I own a Freedom 45, and we love her. The construction quality is very good, the liveability is very good, and it gives reasonably good sailing performance. There are issues here and there, but what boat doesn't have them.
Your 40/40 likely will perform better because I'm willing to bet you haven't loaded it down with cra_, uh, required gear for big and little sailors alike!
If you have specific questions, feel free to PM or email me.
Also, you should call a guy in Warren, Rhode Island who is the world's living authority about all things Freedom. His name is Paul Dennis. He is the former plant manager for Freedom, and he now owns a small yard (Warren River Boatworks) specializing in Freedoms, though he services other boats too. Paul probably is the single best craftsman/repair/innovator/installer I personally have met in the marine industry. I'm not impugning anyone else, but Paul is absolutely fabulous. There is a fair chance that he knows your boat specifically, only because he may very well have built it, and everyone who owns a Freedom knows about Paul so your prior owner may have reached out to Paul. His number is (401) 245-6949
