Ignore the number, just threw that in for fun. Paddled it 6 miles with 15mph breeze on fairly flat water, some little waves. Moves very easily at touring pace, everything about it looks good, low aft deck, skeg line is secured in the recess that the coaming lies in on the left side, nothing to break off or catch. The deck looks clean with flush hatch lids over neoprene covers. Weathercocking characteristics were a little odd with the skeg deployed, I was expecting a more distinct resistance to weathercocking with it deployed but it's not as distinct as other boats. Tracking improved significantly but it was though the tendency to weathercock was still there, it just didn't swing up wind as quickly into the wind so one still worked sweep strokes in nearly as much. It seemed to work best with just a slight deployment than a lot so one could still swing the stern with a sweep. It feels like it should be out amongst waves and shoreline than flat traveling.
