I hope this thread is still alive.
I hope you bought the M34. It is a great boat. I assume by your saying there isn't much underneath that you are referring to the draft
of 3.25'. Remember that this boat has a capsize
ratio under 1.8 and a comfort ratio over 32. This boat can do 6.7kts and better. Mine has done 7.5kts on a regular basis. It is a sweet boat. It goes like hell off the wind
, and will go to weather
quite well if you balance the rig and center board.
If you have any questions at all I would be happy to answer them. I also have a pretty good schematic diagram of the center board system.
