Btw run rough water from the lower helm. Also a semi displacement boat resists rocking compared to full disp because the big keel and chines work for you. We find rocking from side waves to be minimized on this boat. I followed a newly acquired friend in his15 year old nordic tug (nice boat!!) and it rocked more than we did from passing boats. It was same length at waterline and weight as ours and at 1130 rpm (both of us) his 220 hp Cummins burned the same amount of fuel as our 425 hp Cummins, (probably due to a more modern engine in the Beneteau). (Just a note about hard chined boats and stability)
