We have a Knysna Isthmus, a 17' x 21" gas-pedal ruddered, twin-hatch, zero rocker, plumb-bowed South African glass SOT in our fleet. It's twitchy boat for me and other, taller, long-waisted folks, but Sally rides it well, and even JackL and Nanci fared well on it.
It's also a pretty speedy boat, right up there with the QCCs and Epics, tho' still behind the skis. I'd say it's the plumb bow (AND plumb stern) and a fairly sleek, non-rockered hull, that make it a fast boat, but assuredly NOT a traditional "playful" boat to
