Submitted: 09-15-1999 by Roger

Here is a boat with enough elegant (read simple) innovations to make it interesting to ANYONE who paddles. The angled CIRCULAR cockpit REALLY works, you've got to try it to believe. The ultra low and clean rear deck makes layback rolls a piece of cake. The small cockpit ensures enough deck coverage that you won't fall out of a roll when you wanted to stay in the boat. Make sure to get the skeg to combat weathervaning. Long enough waterline to let you catch up to anyone you are chasing. Excellent balance between tracking and maneuverability. My only percieved shortcoming is the "indexed" roll behavior which I find very unsettling. In rough weather the boat transitions very quickly from one chine to the other rather than rolling smoothly. Perhaps this is an inescapeable hard chine phenomenon.
