Have to agree with the previous review. Boat is actually quite seaworthy going to windward. Through a 3+' sea it was very comfortable. The bow cuts through the wave passing water over the bow, but then the high rise near the cockpit easily sheds the water. Have never gotten wet. Downwind, the factory option rudder would be very desirable, and will have mine upgraded to add it.
I trimmed the thigh braces back a little for comfort, which I understand is a common mod on these models.
Bottom line is that if most of your paddling is on lakes, this is a fast boat in compact package. Same comments on hatches.
