The link does not give any clue as to the comments you have noted.

Its on the forum there: current link is

Yachting and Boating World: Multi Hull Show Portsmouth

But probably moves about so the relevant post says

"FountainePajot

Shame there was no Lavezzi as originally promised. They said it wasn't ready in time which is a shame. Enjoyed looking round and test sailing. Sailed well in very little wind. Concerned by lack of bimini (hard top or otherwise and exposed helm). Was concered and surprised by "hobby" horsing motion in almost no swell in the quiet conditions of Sunday. This was MUCH worse than the Broadblue we tried later. More on this later. Did seem like a lot of boat for your money. The other customer on the trail sail was a veteran of a fews cats (unlike me) and was impressed too."

We have just taken delivery of our new Mahe so our view may have a bias.
We took her out in virtually no breeze which then built during the day.
Like most yachts (including monohulls) she was a little sensitive to passing wash when she had no real headway (perhaps similar to the "quiet conditions" that are described).
Once the breeze got up to 6 knots or so the effect went completely.
We are very happy campers.
A longer report to follow.

Congratulations from me as well.

Also looking to hearing more regarding performance, handling and any little niggles or changes you will be making.

Well we finally have the Mahe in our slip! I will leave a more detailed report but it truely was a delivery from hell. The best part was the boat handles excellently . It is, except for a few problems that need to be fixed, (can anyone who has a Mahe tell me how they hooked up the American LP tank to the gas line supplied?) the boat is everything I was looking for. We did a night sail in 15 knot winds and easily hit 9 knots, the boat is fast. I'll post pictures in a week or so, and give a more detailed account of picking up the boat (it includes having to jump off the delivery vessel to our boat suspended off the side, to having a suicide jumper leap off a bridge we were about to pass under to being boarded by the US coast guard to having to kick off our saleman/delivery skipper who wouldn't answer our questions and got drunk and verbally abusive, to having a beautiful night sail along the coast of Florida)

Scott, Congradulations!!!!!!!

There must be a good story there. I'm looking forward to seeing the boat... Hmmmm.... your marina is about a mile away. Time permitting, I may wander over there this afternoon and have my Mahe envy spread throughout the marina (sigh)..

Well. That's a no brainer, Scott. Just resize the photos. (Make them smaller) And then. They will fit.

Trust me on that. Cause, I had to resize some photos. In order to post photos of a sailboat hull. Just look in my photo gallery. Those photos were originally too big to download. And I had to resize them.

Just use a photo program. Like MGI. Or similar type of photo program. And you'll eventually get it.
