Also forgot to say - the flooding hull is a good feature for fishing - when you stop you get a stable platform that doesn't get blown sidweways at wind speed!
It does however mean you get a wee bit of "entetrtainment" when you start, as a bigger engine will lift the whole lot onto the plane easily, whereas the 25 leaves you at 45 degrees (not really, but it feels like it!) for what seems like forever (call it 15-20 seconds!) before the water drains out and you are up on the plane.
Simple solution - store fuel / anchor at the bow, and if you have crew - get them to move forward on take- off - simples!
