hi mate,which sigma?dave miles or gary popes??dave sigme will out run your boat,beleave me.we have had dave at our lake and that sigma of his must be doing 70 mph,as for garys boat,well,he has won the championship with it,so that has to count for something,as you know a fast boat is only fast on its own,when theres 7/8 more boats on the water its not always the fast boat that wins,boat looks good though,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,regards kurt

Hello Toy Boater.

The Seaquell hulll is one that Martin has built. There is a thread somewhere here on it. I run the Panther from Prestwich and it goes well with my modified Zenoah, not sure on actual speed but it goes well enough for me. I have seen that the new Sigma being reported by Dave Marles at 60mph. Fast. They have had success racing off shore. So from that it would indicate that the hull is stable enough in rough and busy water.  :D

The L ynx is a fast boat alright but as you have discovered it can be a handful O0 I was running consistently around 56-60 by myself but with other boats or on lumpier water 50-55 was controllable.
I have now have a Sigma but haven't had much time on the water with it unfortunately. First impressions, just as fast, more stable.
