Fair enough. Not saying a J/24 is built for chop, but I just had a really hard time getting enough power out of the Hunter. This was an older Hunter in not the best shape, but the J/24 in very similar conditions did at least an extra 3-4 kts on a beat. Downwind the Hunter did fine. Really good times on that Hunter though...
