I sailed a Hylas 46 from Newport RI to St Barths via Bermuda.
It is a solid boat. Some niggling issues:
- the berths were unsleepable underway - install lee clothes.
- fresh water heads - we had a water leak, so we did not use them, except ...
- in-mast furling main - one of my biases
Aside from that good.
The backing down issue may be related to the keel. The 49 has a longer keel than the others.
