He says its like riding a motorcycle with a side car...never turns right to the side of the side car...

No one wants to buy it...sad but true
Not to heap it on, but I think I've previously mentioned here that a number of years ago we rendered assistance to an F-27 that had pitch-poled on Chesapeake Bay during an overnight race. It was blowing pretty good that night, they were running before a strong norther and buried a bow. No injuries, everyone taken off safely by the Coast Guard.

Fun looking boats, but it's not only on the open ocean that you have to be cautious...
