  When it gets choppy ...

... And especially with nice sized following seas, the Delphin and Aries will not only keep pace but outpace some longer sleeker craft that in the flats are faster...

But, yes, they are not made for top speed and covering huge distances fast and smooth.

That said, for a 15.5 footer they are not that slow and are actually faster by a smidgen by Zephyr 155 or Chatham and noticeably by an Alchemy... If you want short and fast - Epic 16x would do, but you might not fit in it either (I don't) but do in the D.
