Has anyone checked the capsize and recovery characteristics of the new Hartley boat yet?

As stated, the new Hartley is, like the World, a wet boat.

As for safety; I rather be on a CE class C boat that is easy to recover then on a CE class A or B boat that drains instantaneously but that inverts immediately and is near impossible to recover. Ask yourself what is safer, sitting in a water filled cockpit but upright or on the bottom of an inverted boat that is near impossible to recover?

The plus S is still the perfect cruising boat for me.
