I'm with eh009us. Could'nt ask for a safer boat.I got a Maritime Skiff 20' PilotHouse. More money than a Carolina Skiff but worth it. The ride is better on the Maritime because it has that wave splitting V up front and also that huge rounded bow. Like any other light boat out there, slow down, drop the tabs, and enjoy the ride. I love the fact that I can go out to LE REEF, than to Garden State South, and then up to Garden State North if need be on 10-15 gallons of fuel, and still go in a foot of water when scootin across Great Bay.
