In a bit more than 8 knots of wind and on flat water on Miami’s Biscayne Bay, we sailed closehauled at about 5 knots. Unfortunately, the wind slackened as we bore off to a reach, and so did our speed. From the helm, I found the visibility about the boat to be good, but the hard dodger made it difficult to see and trim the mainsail, and there was no easy way to step to the side deck to get a better view aloft. Since then, the builder has added a window overhead. I also found the winch setup on the boat in Miami to be awkward; it had the port winch atop the coachroof on the port side, which meant one had to leave the helm and cross the boat to tack. The owner, for the record, said it hadn’t been a problem in all the miles he’d sailed, since when cruising, one tends to rely on the autopilot. The company notes that in later models, both primary electric winches have been mounted near the helm.
