they r very good in chop and swell low maintance easy to clean. they wont sink they do have limited storage is about there biggest problem but that can be fixed with a hatch above the back step. I have just got mine and I am more than happy with it for what I use it for.

I'm not sure about the handling, but at the recent Bris. boat show there was a poly boat on a stand and the manufacturers were encouraging people to hit it with a baseball bat. After some heckling from spectators some of the guys were really laying in to it - the result = no apparent damage.

I also saw this at the boat show and was quite amazed .
Speaking with the sales person he showed me a cut section of the hull and pointed out the wall thickness .
So it is no wonder it can cop a good pounding . I also saw that they had additional removeable storage which would double as raised decking . The whole idea was a good concept I thought , appealing to many .
