I am considering buying a Moody 29 (Bilge Keels). Is it possible for anyone to give me some information about sailing performance in different conditions and points of sail (in particular, how close winded is she and what sort of passage planning speed should be assumed), general strengths and weakenesses and things I should look out for when buying. We are rather taken with her but would be interested in how easily she is handled when short handed (2). Our intended cruising area is SW coastal, channel islands and French coast including French canals (hence desire for shallow keel) to South Brittany and maybe all the way to Med! Has anyone had any experience of installing hot water system and shower.

All comments and help most welcome so thanks in advance.
