It sits low but even in the gulf with 3 to 4's it does not take on water through the vents, that is unless those happen to be BREAKING 3 to 4's.
If the waves are breaking out there, I would not venture offshore. It will run in worse but just don't try to anchor in them.
I also anchor off the bow eye and NOT off the back. That keeps the bow into the waves and wind.
I 've got a 5/8's inch line from the bow eye with the loop on the mid-hull cleat I added (drivers side), snap the anchor line on to that and have about 30 feet of line total out in 4 to 7 feet of water depth. Anchor allways holds and use boat hook to retrieve after firing engine(s) and inching forward to take stress off line. Never have to walk out on the deck to set the anchor. It is about perfect size for the two of us and for the water around here most of the time, if it gets too rough, we will stay behind the barrier islands.
