This for the advice...The heel angle isn't at all the issue...it was the up and down motion of the bot over and through the waves. Like I said it was a tad bit choppy. I asked her if it was the angle and even adjusted the boat so there was less heel through the traveler, but she insisted it wasn't the heel angle, it was the up and down. She said she wasn't scared and wasn't worried, she just had to hold on too much for her liking. We looked at a few ads for newer/bigger boats and when it was all said and done she didn't see anything that compelled her to want one more than the boat we have. So I will take her out early in light winds...and save the choppy stuff for the fellas.
