Don't get me wrong. I am not anti Freedom rig and in fact I sailed the early Freedom 40 in the mid 70's and I was impressed. But that model just did not work and the rig was one one component of why that boat did not work.

Thank You Bob Perry

I assumed a performance issue when I saw the boat and it is now confirmed

bobperry That Freedom model was , in my opinion, the worst boat they ever built. It is very slow. A friend of mine, big John, tried to race one to Hawaii single handed. He is a very good sailor and he was the dealer for Freedom. I think he dropped out of the race after three days. I have another story about that boat's performance but I think you get my drift.
