  I have a Tsunami 165
  Posted by: trvlrerik on Feb-17-13 10:09 PM (EST)
 

I bought it as a pack mule and it does it well. Loaded it tracks great and does not need a rudder at all, unloaded in a side or quartering wind, a rudder can be handy to have as the front does ride high. I am 6' 200lbs and the boat does seem huge to me, it takes quite a bit of padding to get a snug fit.
Getting in and out of the cockpit is very easy due to its large opening. It is so easy to get in and out of that I use it as a confidence booster for people learning wet entry.
Not as fast as your tempest but it does make a good SUV in my opinion.
