Chivers Safari

Hi
Getting an itch to do another project and whilst i love the Bertram 20 Bahia Mar its probably a bit small for me - the Safari (23 ft) is very similar in design and looked at one a few years ago and remember thinking how solid and well put together it seemed

I have heard that the Seamaster broaches badly in a following sea, know that this is a different hull but was looking for feedback from anyone who cant tell me a bit about the Safari's ride characteristics

cheers

Pretty sure that most, if not all broaching can be overcome by correct weight distribution and an alert skipper

yes mate but i dont want to be cutting up decks to move fuel tanks :-) - most seamasters are stern drive so not much more opportunity to move weight to the rear
some boats are worse than most - especially cats
