So how does it handle? Normal turning is…well, normal. For kicks, throw the wheel hardover at 50 mph. The 38 LS tracks around like a standard V-hull, sliding slightly before carving around without nosing in. Peculiarly, the same maneuver performed at 30 mph results in the boat heeling well over, more than is comfortable in my view, unless the outboards are kept at neutral trim-their antiventilation plates level with the bottom. It's the only anomaly I discovered and one that the overall speed, soft reentry, and dry ride provided by the 38 LS makes up for. This is, after all, a boat that can take a crew of anglers to the canyons, the family across the Stream to the islands, or a gang of friends out for some wave-blasting hijinks in speed and safety.
