Default Panga hulls

Does anyone have experience with Panga hulls and Great Lakes waters?
How do they handle the shallow lake water chop vs. the deeper saltwater waves?

A panga is a boat design, that will take on the ocean and lake chop and still keep you pretty dry. But, i went out 24 miles in the ocean in 1'-2' seas to dive sunday, and my body still has not recovered. That flat bottom slams in the seas and chop bad.

Your input is much appreciated Hensleyfish.
I'm continuing to research the performance characteristics for a grounded decision.
Thank you.

PS: Hensleyfish, do you recall the length of the boat you were in?

Recently we have modified the 22 foot hull which dramatically improved the ride and performance.
New for 2016 the Captiva 22 from Panga Marine
