Gulfstar41 & Running

I 'v read, and read, and read, that the Gulfstar 41 is good on all points of sail except running.

But I can't find out just what is not good about this boat's behavior downwind. Does she roll, wallow or what? Would appreciate any and all feedback.

Many thanks

Sounds like an odd review. Depending on conditions running is not always an easy point of sail for many boats. The stern fals off the wave and sometimes it's one way and then the other. It makes for some delicate steering. What if the information you read was not exactly accurate?
