I see the Dynamic serie (d300, d340, d380) this way:

Positive:
-quite fast with not much horsepower
-tube (pvc) quality is ok

Negative:
-not a flat deck inside, single floor
-transom strength isn't very good, especially when you wave-jump alot

I would say nice boat, lot of fun with a 15hp engine.

Yes i would agree with you, my 3.80 transom started to crack either side so I got it filled in by a boat builder
