What is the Morgan 41 Out-Island sailboat like to sail?

Based on Published Design Ratios for the Morgan 41 Out-Island:

Her Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 15.5 suggests that she is just a tad under-powered and will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.

Her Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 37.0 means that she is likely to benefit from being reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.

Her Displacement/Length Ratio of 261 tells us she is a moderate displacement cruiser, which means she'll carry all your cruising gear without it having a dramatic effect on her performance. 

Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 29.7 suggests that her crew comfort in a seaway is very close to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
