Slow down swabby, I fish the Sea of Cortez on a regular basis and it is not uncommon to chase tuna 30-40 and, yes, 50 miles out-north-south. My longest run has been 62 miles in an 16' Lonestar. But, that is really nothing when you realize pangeros cross the Cortez from the mainland to the pennisulain in 19 & 20 footers. The point of my post however, is not whether you are up to such distances but whether the Kingfisher is. The Cortez can be a bumpy place and I am looking for feed back on the hull design of the Kingfisher.
