  rought water and short...

Rough water and short generally go well together. Check out what Neptune's Rangers do at P&H Delphin, dagger Alchemy, Pyranha Fusion are the most common boats used (but a few others are in there). Longest of that pack is the 15.5' Delphin. I show up in some of these videos in my red and orange Alchemy with red helmet, but I am not as good as the guys and gals you see the most of ( paddles with them also, so may also show up).

Short boats generally lose in speed and storage capacity. A shorter water line boat will generally have a slower hull speed. And of course, less room to pack stuff.

But if anything, I would rather a shorter boat in chop or the surf zone than a longer boat.
