I own a 44 Walk Over, dont sail very well in light air , but with a good set of light air sails
you can improve the perfomance, the boat is made very heavy, all the laminated in the hull
is made to last forever, no core !! There is 2 keels version, one shallow draft
and the other deep draft
, like 6.6 ft... i recomend you the deep draft
version if you finally choose this boat, in heavy airs is where finally this boat is happy,20 to 25 knts with full main is not a problem, she take the waves very well, no poundings!! Anyway, for me is a great boat, and when the weather
turn bad is when i feel more comfortable.
