Interesting that a 6+M boat still managed to find a couple of "holes" but overall, very well. It just eats the usual Hinchinbrook short chop and even in the really rough stuff never felt unsafe or out of its depth. Apart from a couple of waves over the bow, its a very dry boat in the worst conditions I am likely to be out in.

The hull continues to exceed my expectations.

If it made you happy in the worst conditions you plan on being in I would say that is about all a man could ask for. I do not think it matters how big a boat is they all will find a hole every now and again. The idea it eats the normal chop has to please you very much.

Tried a little later and it played just fine. :D
Looks like the boat works just fine for wake boarding also. I do believe your new years weather is just a tad nicer than mine.
