That boat have a keel? It cant with that power and performance.

I love something from totally outside of the box thinking. Especially when it seems to work.

Can anyone comment on the hull design of this boat?

Someone commented on it being a Downeast Garvey, what does that mean?

It looks to be a pretty flat bottom boat, but, the add says "v bottom"

How would you expect this boat to perform in a chop or rough water at a reasonable speed(12-17kts)?

Thanks

If it rides anything like my 20x8 Garvey... Chop/rough water will knock your balls up into your shirt pocket.

We also added strakes to the bottom of mine so it had some bite to turn with instead of slide.
