You can find Sea Kayaker's review of the Shearwater 17 at the link below.
>>>>>>>... I like to read your impressions, particularly regarding: acceleration drag (I wish CLC posted 'wetted surface specs), initial/secondary stability vs. beam width, edging/turning, wind/weathercocking >>>>>>>
I wish these things could be quantified. As it is these are all enormously subjective parameters, which is one reason we put a lot of effort into getting our boats out on the water at demos around the country. Our new website (out shortly) works towards sifting all of the data into something you can compare easily from boat to boat.
