Freeboard was OK -- it was an incredibly flat glassy day.

I don't know that I tried to plane it -- we were only going about
.4 nm (Whaler's Cove ramp to Twin Peaks), but I probably could
have. 90HP two-stroke on a 935 pound hull with a relatively flat bottom
planes really easily. I've pulled up a BIG skier (240 pounds)
on a single ski and three in the boat.
