  Opinions about round hulls and hard
  Posted by: dong on Apr-15-13 10:30 PM (EST)

chine hulls will never give a reasonable answer. Other hull design features play a much greater part in tracking and maneuverability. The part of the hull that's under the waterline will tell you a lot. A hard chined hull can make carving turns better and it can also reduce side slip when paddling with a side wind. Besides that there really isn't much difference.
