    I see you spoke highly (4 years ago!) about a Ted Brewer Pan Oceanic 46. Does this mean you have experience sailing one? Due to the rough weather we anticipate in the upper lats we plan to cruise, I'm crossing my fingers that you may be able to answer some questions for me

    How does she do upwind? I'm not planning on winning any upwind races but how would she do fighting off a lee shore in a heavy blow?

    What sort of comfort ratio can we expect? Based on her lines and displacement, I would think she would not be at all tender, but I'd love to hear what you think about her on this subject.

    How much wind does it take to achieve headway (all be it slow headway), and how much wind before she hits cruising speed?

    How is visibility from the cockpit? From the pilot house?

    Thank you very much in advance. We have been looking for our cruising boat for awhile now and really hope this could be the one.

    Hi. I own a Cal CC46. I'm almost sure it is hull #14. It is pretty much original and in need of some TLC. I would like to get any advise you can share. I love the boat and I have a four year plan to bring her to cruising specs. So far I replaced the V-drive some chain plates, standing rigging, plumbing and some electrical. Im new at this, but I'm good at fixing stuff, so that should help me some.
