It's a displacement hull with a very soft chine. It's as narrow as many old school displacement hull boats.

Haven't done the Grand, but did some big water runs in the Remix this Spring. It surfs as well as an RPM, but isn't as likely to pearl because it's got more bow rocker. Very fast, and melts through weird currents like a hot knife through butter. It's definitely work looking at.

Doesn't feel what wide at all. I spend a ton of time in my medium Burn which feels noticeably wider. Pyranha's specs it at 25 3/4" wide. I don't have the Remix 69 handy to measure but it sure doesn't feel wider than a Burn. Sure is comfy, though.

Comfort is key. Tracking is nice. Lots of flatwater.

I did it in an EZ and had plenty of good surfs. I was told beforehand "you'll be just fine in the EZ, but the flatwater will be even flatter". That point was well taken after 226 miles.

Have fun.

I boated an EZ regularly before I went down the Grand. I got a Big EZ for the trip because of the comfort factor and had a blast. That said, I am now boating in a Jackson All Star and would take this boat down the Grand in a heartbeat. It's comfortable and fun. What else do you need?

You don't need a big long boat to have fun on the Grand. I was surfing a lot more than the guys on our trip in the long boats. I would be bored to tears in an RPM.

best boat

I am in a similar boat - just got invited on an 18 day trip and want to play as much as possible. I have a Bilsstick RAD 180 - it plays well, but hurts a lot, and on big water tends to get stern squirted all over the place. I have a REmix available to me as well as a Dragorossi Pintail. Will the remix be an aggressive enough playboat without the planing hull? Anyone have experience with the Pintail? I want to surf as much as possible, throw wave wheels - have lots of fun out there. What do you think?
