See you have a Linder listed - watched one of those sink last week in the run
- Good for in the harbour due to thier bomb proof build - but not so hot in the rough stuff in the run or to sea.
What were they doing with the Linder?! Although admittedly there was a fair bit of wind at times last weekend - did it just get swamped by multiple waves or something?
We have a similar aluminium SeaNymph for running around Poole Harbour, and have taken that out in all sorts of conditions, often fairly well loaded, and haven't yet felt uncomfortable/unsafe in it, even though I know it really is a lake/flat water boat. With careful steering and judicious use of power, I've managed to get it through most things without taking on much water.
