I picked one up last week end.

Got her out for a quick shake down in 5-6 knots of wind, Handled nicely.

This week end wind was all over the place, Saturday was windy and thunderstormy so I waited.

Sunday was windy and gusty- St Lawrence River. Windy.com said 15 knots gusting to 36 knots. Hmm.

So I gave it a try, I am 205. It was nuts. Could not keep the windward hull in the water. Could not control the boat in any meaningful way.

Went back to the beach and reefed to about 2/3 thirds main.

Wicked sail. Windward hull was still wanted to fly, but I was able to make it work.

Hit 10.8 knots on a close reach (maybe a reach). Way faster than I was expecting to go with this boat.

I know there is more speed under the hood, but how much? 12? 14?
