The Passport 40 is also on my shortlist (Passport 40, Caliber 38, Bristol 41.1) so i was also hoping to read som replies from people with information. You might try looking at Sailnet.com. I seen some info there.
I only have "web experience" of the Passport 40 but it seems to be a well biuit, sails
reasonably well cruiser from the 80ties capable of going off shore. The only hang-up some people have is that the keel
is built (glassed) in. Personally I like the layout except the cockpit
benches doesn't look to big enough to sleep (rest) on. That's important, but again, I never been on one.
