I've sailed my in 25 mph with probles except getting wet. She would loose much momentum hitting large waves, but over all she was a good ride?

You ended the sentence with a question mark, but I don't understand your question.

As a comment to your post, I've found that too that the Getaway does loose some momentum in waves when they hit the trampoline. Not much you can do about that.

Too bad the front tramp is not up a few inches higher.

Sometimes, I find it's the rear of the tramp. Slam on a wave, bow in the air in front of the wave which causes the stern to go a little deeper and the tramp drags on the wave.
