You may have a regional or isp block on it.
I've seen you on the forum a number of times and below is the question i tried to post, or have posted, (i can't find it) can you pls help me on the way?
Let me introduce myself at first; in two lines: I am 51 years old and have been sailing "sail boats" all my life; started of in a 6ft dingy and ended up with a 45ft sailing yacht. Never crossed the atlantic, but did all else possible in europe.
Here is the question:
I intend to buy a GB42 Classic and would like to know it's behavior in "rough" weather, all I can see, read ,and view on the net and in this forum, is pretty much cool cruising. Now what happens if we hit some more severe weather?
Lets say a gale 5 with 5-6ft waves: how does the boat hold?, what is its behavior? is there a lot of overspray, does it maintain course, what's flying around in the cabin etc.
Can you, and I am sure most of you , if not all, have encountered this sort of weather, provide me with some feed back?
I thank all of you in advance and look forward to hearing your stories/comments.
Thanks a million.
