I've always wanted to do the CUBAR but my GS 36 has a hull speed of just under 7 knots and the CUBAR used to require a minimum cruise speed of 8 knots. Do you know if there is any flexibility in the cruising speed requirement?
By the way, I'm located on Harbor Island, maybe I'll see you on the bay.
As to the GS 44, I thought the 43 has a full displacement hull and the 44 was semi-planing. The full displacement hull is round and does roll but it hasn't bothered me.
