First off it's a very easy boat to sail. Ideal for singlehandling or a couple. Got it up to 7.5 knots. Don't know wind speed, wind instruments not hooked up yet. Wife said the heeling was moderate, which is supposed to be a feature of this boat. I didn't notice.

A great layout below. Obviously smaller than our 473, but better thought out, imo. Much easier access to maintenance items.

Only sailed about 3 or 4 hours total. But lots of tacking on the Delaware. Didn't miss the traveler.

This is a photo from earlier in the week. The weather this weekend was great! Can't wait to get on the Chesapeake.



I always assume the pictures in the magazines are going to make boats look good, but even under a grey sky with a boatyard in the background that thing is absolutely amazing! Stunning boat.

Congratulations!!


As an aside, what do you plan on doing for a dodger? I'd be interested to see if there is any way to work around the arch.
