A fisherman who you used to go by the moniker Popeye in Key West way back had a Munroe 36 or 42 made to replace his wood boat. It was laid up heavy and had frames glassed into too. I saw it running towards Stock Island one day just off the beach south of Key West in a short steep chop. It wasn't bouncing at all. It was so heavy it was literally punching through the waves. Each time it hit one it looked like an explosion on the water during which the boat would disappear from view for a brief moment.
