Overpower - the bow goes up with each stroke, lots of splashing from the bow, but that is extremely unlikely with GP.

We are, I think, having slightly different priorities :)
OK, with additional information, xcite-s is probably better for you - it is narrower, fun boat to paddle. And, being lower volume it might be more suitable for the traditional rolling. BTW - I don't recall if the back deck is low enough to allow for a good layback in this boat.

Lots of folks like very snug fitting boats, but I think that too snug a boat impedes good forward stroke, makes rotating in the seat very restrictive.

Darn, I wish you could try Pilgrim Expedition - it has cockpit very similar to xcite-s, total volume is 283l.
