I want to jump on EZE for B&M-ing about someone going 3 miles in 3 ft rollers in a 14 ft boat. If it was a V hull with some sides, I would have no problem doing that - rollers are not exactly wind born chop... BTW - I used to fish the ocean in a 14 ft V very often - never had a problem. Some guys are more able in a small boat than others are in a larger craft. It all depends on upbringing and experience. Guys raised with boats are a lot more able than guys who decide to go & buy one at 40 years old. all that being said - Let's keep our "better than thou" thoughts to ourselves and have a nice post.
