Mine is the medium profile blackjack layup which for my total load is plenty and it facilitates use of the single blade. As mentioned previously, even in the rough stuff I've not taken on water. The flared configuration works wonders in spite of the relatively low freeboard.
It's tracking is excellent especially considering it's length.(weather cocking is non existent) but that comes at the price of diminished instant turning. Even healed over to the rail, which isn't much of lean,
It is slower to turn than my placid shadow at 16 ft. It is not a freestyle craft. It is not any louder than other composite boats.
