  Most plastic boats will get blown around
  Posted by: wolfmanrobby on Jul-07-13 9:59 PM (EST)
 

Plastic boats don't have a lot of weight to them and they will blow around.

Sit-on-tops do tend to have more of a shaped hull (my Pelican Icon 120 even has a keel) and will track a little better. It hasn't blown around much in the wind I've been in. mainly because it has a lower cross profile. Think how much of a Canoe sits up out of the water to catch the wind.

See how low this one rides (Pelican Apex 130 Tandem)

And, notice the shape of the hull
