But the presupposition is that the reviewer has the ability to judge what those things really mean. And it's very relative -- a sea kayaker moving to a shorter boat might find it very easy to turn whereas a whitewater guy moving to the same boat may find that it tracks hard. There is no way to really fix a rating system that is open to the masses...

Best I can tell, the only use of it at all is for eliminating boats with poor ratings. If it has several low ratings, there's a high probability it's a pig.

Mythbusters proved you can indeed polish a turd, but is it something you really want to do?
