Rob Mack's boats that I've tried (North Star, Ootek, Ootek X) are all straighter-tracking, as near as dammit neutral (don't weathercock) and much more stable than Nick's. Also a little slow.

Thanks for your kind compliments.

I can understand how you might feel my designs are a bit slower
since you don't have to paddle fast to stay upright, or waste energy with correction strokes.

You can relax and enjoy the ride.
