Our initial test at the Miami Boat Show was hurried. We slammed the 2300 through a tough shakedown and found nary a soft spot. Running down Government Cut through a nasty mixed chop, the paired, full-length strakes and slight reverse chine kept the hull flat and dry. Once offshore, the more predictable but still-sloppy two- to four-footers provided another angle on seaworthiness. It was not a day we would have chosen to go fishing, yet we were perfectly comfortable. And more importantly, we felt entirely secure. You get the feeling this little boat can handle a lot more than you can. Even when the hull failed to bridge the wavetops to remain level, the landing was uneventful - sudden, but soft.
