    Hey everyone. Since there was a bit of chat about the Tempest here and there, is anyone here thoroughly familiar with the Tempest 170 poly AND the CD Sirocco? As a long time Sirocco owner, I am curious how the two compare, ie are there sufficient pros to the Tempest to consider jumping ship....? My only real gripes with the Sirocco is weather cocking and a somewhat bulbous foredeck. I tried the Tempest once and don't remember anything remarkable but it was a flat water setting.
