  disagree??

I've owned a Prism, a Voyager, and a Wilderness and all of them responded well to a moderate lean. They wouldn't spin on a dime, but they weren't supposed to. I found it very simple to edge the boats a bit to carve turn, and my experience has been that they can be heeled enough to make them noticeably more maneuverable, although it took a deliberate effort unlike some other boats that heel pretty effortlessly.

Ahh, I re-checked your post and you said don't expect them to become MUCH more maneuverable. Maybe we agree after all. I think perhaps I'm haggling over definitions.
