Comments from the owner, Jim Whalen:
"In short, the boat is absolutely incredible. After 6000 miles at sea, I have that peace of mind one gets when you totally trust your boat and equipment and understand its capabilities. I feel safe w/ my family on board anywhere over any period of time (my limitations will pop up way before the boat’s). The performance and comfort need to be experienced to be believed. I told my friends what to expect on our last leg from Key West to Annapolis but they still told their wives they would be home 3 days later than our actual arrival.
We left Key West (last leg to Annapolis) on Friday at 0830 and arrived in Annapolis Tuesday at 1500 …..a little over 1000 N miles just over 4 days. Conditions were near perfect. I had two friends on board who have been sailing various mono hulls most of their lives and they couldn’t believe the comfort, stability and performance of the boat. An observation from one of them: ”This was the best sail I have ever had”…his exact words. He is a professional seaman (Chesapeake Bay pilot) and has been sailing all is life (owns a 43’ mono hull). "
