I had the boat out this last weekend and the setup was easy. We had some light swells on the water and the Emarine 365 handled them nicely. I have had the opportunity to use it with both my 7.5 Evinrude and 40# trolling motor. With one person in the bow and one at the motor, the boat got up on plane quite easily and motored along at a good clip with great handling. I especially like how stable it is. I have two young boys (4 and 6) that do not like to sit still. With the floatation being at the outer tubes, the Emarine is much more stable than an aluminum skiff. Thanks Gerry for the new experiences and service.
