" Under sail the boat was impressive, making good progress in the light and accelerating well in the gusts. We got her up to 6 knots close reaching in breezes well below 10 knots. She handled positively, being ready to tak with little way on and willing to feather her way upwind in a narrow channel, which he had expected to require the engine. There was certainly nothing lethargic about this cruising boat. Ed Dubois has produced another good design."
Under Power they said, " We expect spade rudder boats to handle well under power astern, but this was so good it was impossible to tell which way the 'paddle wheel effect' was trying to push the stern. Turning circles astern and ahead was no more than one and a half lengths. It was only at high speed going ahead that prop thrust could be detected.
Conclusion. "Ed Dubois has combined good performance and handling with a large volume interior - and without the latter being obvious from outside. Westerly have used the space sensible and with considerable thought for the owner. Overall, we regard the vessel as an extremely effective performance cruising boat."
