As the helicopter sat on the tarmac waiting for the rain to end, I took the opportunity to run the 230CC in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Winds were calm, but a large motoryacht threw enough wake to test lateral stability. If you like drift-fishing, you’ll find the 230CC stable and remarkably quiet, without much wave-slapping noise. Underway, trim-tab response proved accurate and sensitive without being too aggressive. Wheel hard-over turns at cruising speed and trim blend quickly, finishing with a minor stern slide, so your precious passengers will remain safe and sound in semiradical maneuvers. Unlike some of its competition in this size range, the EdgeWater tracks beautifully at slow speed with no hint of wandering.
