Well, I have one. In fact, sitting in the cockpit now. Spent the day sailing. Nope, doesn't pound. Wife was at the helm, 50 degrees off the wind, 16 knots true. She took her hands off the helm, stayed true.

Super easy to sail well.

Don't have the joystick. Just a thruster and folding 3 blade. Great around the dock.

It's a coastal cruiser, though.

Kinda nice. Wasn't any wind when we headed out....back to the dock 8 hours later. Nice day sail.
