I am new to this forum and as this thread is about Feeling yachts in general, I have some questions about the Feeling 44 DI perhaps an owner could answer:
This yacht seems to me quite suitable for bluewatersailing because of the centerboard
and good space management below deck
Is it (beside material) comparable with a ovni
435 which I know already?
As the yachts are now mainly +15 years old, are there beside the usual signs of wear any weak points to observe?
I found different opinions about the construction of the centerboard
which is one of the significant characteristics of the yacht eg
- problems reversing the yacht because of 2 rudders
- problems with the keelbox (delamination)
- poor onwind performance (compared with fixedkeel versions)
thank you for your answers
