    Seaworthyness is more a function of skippering skill, though certain features can make a boat safer, such as self draining cockpits, bridge decks, etc. That boat will be fine if you aren't in a big hurry or try to over power her. In Billy's day a 250 CID engine would only have 50 - 75 HP or so. This is a big, fairly heavy by modern standards, powerboat of a type not seen in generations. She'll be comfortable in a rough patch of water, just don't expect to go very fast.
