Square transom, small rudder planing hulls are a handful in following seas at low speed. Mine is certainly no exception to that. But add some power and things get better. Ideally, keep enough power on that you're keeping up with the waves and life gets much easier. Or if the waves are not too steep, you can go faster and just smoothly (and not too quickly) go up and over, provided your boat has decent surfing behavior. Last time I got to do that in steady 3 footers I was seeing 13 - 14 kts going up the waves and about 18 coming down with power set for about 15 - 15.5 kts in calm water.
