Unhappy Delivering a Corinthian 41

I've raced one-design mono-hulls for 50 years but have no experience on a trimaran. I'm involved in a boat delivery from Burlington VT to St. Pete, FL and need to know about this boat handling characteristics in open water. How does it behave in off-shore seas. Is there a danger limit of wind/seas before we need to head for shore? What should I know about tri's handling beside they don't point well. What kind of speeds are normal in 12-15 knots wind? I need to prepare myself mentally for getting home safe I will also be the navigator:

Re: Delivering a Corinthian 41

One of the owners of the multihull dynamics website owns a Corinthian 41, hopefully he will chime in. We contacted him because we were interested in one a couple of years ago. The specs are on his website, and from what I can interpret she will be very seaworthy but not a speed demon. Maybe the first fiberglass production built trimarans?
