Information on 33'''' Freedom Cat Ketch

I love the looks of the Freedom Cat Ketch, but have no experience sailing one. Does anyone know how well she will go to wind, and is weather helm a problem? I''m also used to sailing boats with fin keels, and have very little experience with centerboards on such a large craft. Is having a centerboarder a negative in the waters I sail, Buzzards Bay and Gulf of Maine? I forgot to add that I will be doing alot of single handed sailing with her, want a rig that is manageable but not one that turns the boat into a slug. Thanks in advance for any help.

Practical Sailor has a review of the Freedom 33, click on boat reviews on their website. Also, Good Old Boat magazine just featured the Freedom 33. It is a boat I, too, am interested in, but have never had the opportunity to sail one.
