: I don't have any experience with the boat, but looking at the
: cockpit brings up a couple of possible problems
: 1. The forward half of the cockpit seems to be very wide, which
: would make it difficult to engage the legs for edging and
: 2. The back of the cockpit seems to be very high, which would make
: layback rolls difficult.
: The former owner of this boat mentioned that it's not the best
: rolling boat out there. The cockpit design may be part of the
: reason for this.
Like I said, if you build the PB then it's easy enough to tweak things to suit your specific needs. I bought mine from a friend who surfed it and wanted a quick exit. The keyhole design makes Greenland rolls a little bit more tricky but still manageable. The sheer line was lowered about an inch from the original plan. If you recess the coaming then laybacks will be a breeze. Make it an ocean cockpit and it will be even better. There are a number of photos on the website showing PB's with alterations including two built by Lee Chang here in NJ. Both have had sheer lines lowered to reduce volume.
