They are tender and not comfortable in waves. Take your traditional 2500 lb boat, and add 10 feet to the bow. The ends of this boat are So, so light, it pitches back and forth over the waves..but at the same time,it's not slowing down, just going up and over (Screw that displacing water buisness!)

This is the boat you want for a crazy downwind far offshore. IMHO, you can get the same experience near shore in an old 505 for a lot less money, and save the money for a heavier boat.
