A surprising thing about the Alto vs. a Looksha IV: The Alto is faster, at least it is when both boats are lightly loaded. This is true although the Alto is shorter. My buddy and I traded boats because we thought the effect was due to his superior muscle, but nope. Whoever paddled the Alto was having an easier time making way. The Alto has great primary stability and fair secondary stability, but then it gets to a point where it lets go pretty quickly. Alto could be a little stiffer, and the hatches could be a little drier. Same is true for many plastic boats. The price/performance/speed/stability/capacity compromise is very good.
