It's an unbelievably dry ride. The swell and waves were reasonable on Friday, up to about a meter and I don't think we got a drop of water in the boat. It turns very flat, as you might expect but is very stable when stationary, which is perfect for diving. It has a reasonable 1.3m internal beam, so plenty of deck space too. I was always under the impression from previous trips with the original owner and since I bought it that it tended to slam a little in rough water. While not the best hull for really rough weather, having been out with somebody with a lot more experience than I, it seems that with the right helmsman it is not too uncomfortable at all. It really picks up quickly and with a blip of throttle is almost instantly on the plane, although that may be more down to the silent beast on the transom.
I was reading about 1.7 miles per liter at 25mph, so pretty frugal too.
