Exactly. I can't remember many times in the North Sea when conditions allowed flat out use of the boat anyway, and trust me for handling large waves or close quarter pickups, the Delta's aren't underpowered at the configuration described.

My comment isn't meant as a criticism. It's a work boat and I'm sure it does the job. And, if it's the one I think it is, I've had a ride in it.
