Hmm, I picked up a 33lb Manta (Bruce knockoff) at a local WM that was closing for a ridiculously low price on their last day. This is supposed to be over sized for my 30 footer and I figured I'd swap my Manta for the Danforth when I start doing longer cruises.

Now you have me wondering - are there known issues with the geometry of the Manta and will it really be an improvement over my 20lb Danforth?
