I have a straight inboard 26' seaway. What do you want to know? With a 300hp 350 I cruise @18-19 mph @3200 boat rides great in any kinda head sea its a nice ride ok in a following its weak side would be any type of tight quartering sea makes me either back off the throttle or very active on the wheel. Lots of room in he cockpit.

thanks for the response. i am interested in a small 26ish lobsterboat. how does that hard chine treat you? nice and stable?
the cuddy looks rather high. does this allow for a stand up head that you can stand up in?
i went down below in a new 26 duffy and would have had to seriously hunch and stoop to have a pee in their "stand up head".

No head on my setup, but I can stand in the first 30" of the cabin and that's it.
