Bombard C3

Last Month I purchased my first boat a Bombard C3 with a yamaha 25n.
Would like to hear from other people about this boat as i cant seam to find to much information about it our of any other wooden kell Sibs.
Is this type of keel better or worse than the inflatable type?

I went out with it for a weekend and was surprised by the handling and planing stability, even had a bit of fun with some rough waters.

Please coment on the boat, would like to here some oppinions.

I had a C5 for a few years. It was a good rigid boat and surprisingly seaworthy. However, it could shake your teeth out on bumpy water. I'd previously had a hypalon sib an it was the most bendy thing a bendy thing can be.
