The 30 Velocity will fly with small power but the handling is much different than a conventional vee. It's hard to describe- they are more sensitive to trim and tab corrections and you can get some pad slap at times. It's a driver's boat- maybe not a great first-time performance boat- but onbce you get the feel of it, you'll go faster with fewer HP and fewer $$ than just about anything else.
