Oh jeez, I've been in gales in the Yucatan Channel opposing the stream . I've hove to in 15 footers stacked for 3 day's at a time. 8 foot draft board down and a bunch lead pigs in My bildge. I love the little boat. Taking it to Honduras non stop in May weather or not. I did a way with the spade rudder and put a Barn door on the transom.
