I agree that the smaller wheel will make the rest of the boat look bigger, but it still seems a bit small. Wonder if it is still hydraulic powered, or faux? Also it usually goes that you can get more speed with less bucket dip (to a point), and more power with deeper dip. The larger the wheel diameter, the better "attack" the buckets have on the water, as they are doing less "pushing down" and "lifting up" upon entering and exiting the water. But I can't tell much difference in the QOW's dip from these photos!
