sided whitewater boat tracks very well, once it gets moving, but once you lean in or out to change course, those chines may leave you tipped up and over.
Chines needn't be sharp to act "hard". The effect of hard chines depends on the design of the rest of the boat. I have a Necky Looksha Sport that has hard chines, and for me as a whitewater paddler, it seems very willing to track. But it might not impress a serious sea kayaker that way.
