IMO this is probably the best SOT ever in the 15-16' length range. A lot of thought went in to it's design. There's a lot of things I really like about this boat. It's surprising how stable it is for a 26" width. It has some rocker fore and aft. Rocker is very important when trying to get past waves. It allows you to go up and over rather than slicing right into the wave. It also helps when turning/maneuvering.
The TW is great-not to big/not to small. While not the fastest it's narrow design makes maintaining good speed/glide easier than most boats in this length. Very comfortable for me but the seat width might be to tight for larger folks. Weight is less than others in this class which can be a real issue if you're alone.
Hard to believe Ocean discontinued this one for the second time. I guess the sales just weren't there or they want to push the 15' Prowlers. Anyway the good news is RTM now holds the rights on this one and are selling it as the Tempo. Though I now paddle the Prowler 13 Angler because the shorter length is easier to live with this is still a great boat.
