float in spit, deflect water better than a battle ship, can actually attract fish, claim to weigh 400lbs but come in at 500. Run 40 mph with 20hp and are in no way tippy. My question is, how well does your boat move at idle or slow speed? Just me or do they all suck at this? If I move someone to the bow it’s a huge improvement. I think it’s just a byproduct of having as much weight at the back as the entire craft weighs. Let’s hear your claims. Yes I’m bored! Not by choice.

Mine plows at idle speed with extra weight up front. It likes weight in the aft, but my skiff is built on a bassboat hull.

Reverse is okay. Mine will plane at relatively low speed if someone is up front. I can get away with a much higher "no wake speed" that way.

I do have to remind myself to not be in shallow running mode with my manual T/T when reversing.

My runs fine at idle. Never notice it
