Mike,

Haven't been across any oceans with her. We've done passages from Virginia to and from Bermuda and to and from the BVI several times (about 6,000 nm offshore), plus a lot of Tradewinds sailing up and down the Lesser Antilles chain. The boat's been perfect for us in just about every way (my wife would like a bit more room in the owner's cabin). She handles well in all conditions up to Force 9, and is solid as a rock.

There's a bit more detail in a post I made in response to another member's question: ? for IP Owners

To paraphrase Dan (Ex-Calif) in another context: You are talking about the boat, and not your wife, right?

Be careful, Tao.

Be very, very careful.
