Just purchased a polyetheline savannah ( expedition model with rudder ) and have used twice on relatively calm water. Seems to handle perfectly.I am 6' 175lbs. Cockpit fits me like a glove, ample leg room. Seems stable, have'nt been in rough water yet. Great looking boat, well designed. Comfortabe seat. Best value for the money. (Rudder recommended.)
UPDATE 05/29/02 -- ave made a few more excursions in the Savannagh and each time returned with partially wet shorts. Surprised to discover 8 ( Eight ) loose deck bolts /
nuts, securing plastic seat and rigging to deck. Water was seeping into the cockpit and onto me past these bolts. Problem solved by tightening them. Go's to prove that if any water can get in, it will. This is an excellent boat, very stable and fairly fast, however, a rating of 8 seems more realistic.
