Re: offshore sailing
Just from the pictures, the hull shape looks okay, though that doesn't say a lot. As for how comfortable it will be offshore, that depends a lot on its displacement and ballast numbers. Do you know those details? How about the ratio of sail area to displacement? That will have a lot to say about how well it is going to sail. I don't see those kind of statistics anywhere.
