It isn’t an unreasonable expectation that a boat should float, and she did! It wasn’t so much that I was concerned that she wouldn’t float, more that I was very aware that neither hull had seen water in well over a year. And given the repairs that we have already had to do this year a mild amount of concern seemed warranted. However all concern was unnecessary as she floats like a champ, unless both crew members are too far astern, then she gets a little unhappy. But, this is a new type of boat to us so there is going to be a learning curve.
