Since I am newer to OC I have potentially a goober question:
What makes the difference in an OC-1 design and how it moves?
From what I've read a longer boat is better for flat water
Shorter boat for chop
More or less rocker also adds to the equation...
So why then doesn't every flat water paddler buy a longer boat for example? And why is the Hurricane the most popular seemlingly right now and win so many races when its short and light? Is it all just about weight of the boat at that point?
Just wondering - thanks and no I aint asking what is the best OC1 - too many of those posts - I want design facts just for my own edification.
