In large seas, 4-6', try turning the boat in a circle. The narrow front sponson will dig in every time, scaring the b-jesus out of you.
Then run it +20 mph in flat water and the spray from the tunnel will keep the back of your legs and butt wet all day long.
The newer one is not much better as it is overweight for the sponson areas. The 26 is better as mentioned before.
