Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

Great post, Ron. That is one beautiful boat you've got there. Thank you for sharing your pictures and insights.

One question: In your first paragraph you mentioned that Radon's deep v-hulls can be dangerous in a following sea, but then you mentioned that you still run home to Channel Islands at 25-30kts. That confused me a bit. What is it about your boat that allows you to maintain that speed in a following sea, despite the stated drawback of the v-hull?
