My newest bestest friend
I took the Cetus MV out onto Lake Michigan just now. It was blowing 15-20K with lots of calapotis waves and slop. She handled like a dream. A tad less stable than her big brother but no tendency to weather cock?? It sits lower in the water as is is narrower and I weight it down more. I will try a little weight in the forward hatch next time. I tested out the skeb but, to tell the truth, there was no need for one. Not even going directly down wind.
Went through all the strokes effortlessly. With a hanging draw, she slides sideways as if on ice. Acceleration is good and the cockpit comfy.
She surfed without asking permission, and it was effortless to maintain a good pace. Almost did some rolling, but the air was relatively warm while the water is still in low 40's F.
Next free day with lousy weather will be time to install compass.
