They are wet in a chop and inclined to flip over in a wind. In the UK I have seen people tow them with the nose out of the water and hard up against the top of the transom so only the stern is in the water.

But they are well made long lasting and light. It is possible to replace the slats in the floor with a three piece ply folding floor which makes it MUCH nicer to use.
