From the Venture site, the Capella 166 & 160 look to be vey different boats. The 160 in the alt. view show defined rocker as the WS tempest 165 does,(making these much more manuverable I'd expect). The C-166 looks almost rail straight, good for tracking, but I'd not expect much in the way of responsiveness. On their site you can click the "units" to get inches and pounds, worth looking at, the 166 looks to be a fairly large boat & might be barge like without enough weight.

FWIW, t.george
