Yeah in a good sea, they are damn uncomfortable. They may slice through waves, but the velocity simply makes them for a very difficulte ride. It was very difficult to try and walk down an isle. They had really good seating, and you needed to just sit down and stay. But on a 2hr trip, that was not always what you wanted to do.

...had a look at one of those at our local boat show. The wheels are driven by hydraulic motors and the whole shebang folds up like an aircraft undercaridge. niffty if you had a beach front property.
