This is a very stable boat. I went to paddle test a few canoes before making a decision. I test paddled the Camper 15, the Charles River and the Stillwater 14. In my mind, and the minds of the kids I had with me (ages 14+15), the Stillwater was comfortable and had a much better feeling of stability. I have used it mostly on lakes both with 1,2, or 3 people in the boat and it has been a joy. Not the fastest thing on the water but who's rushing in a canoe anyway.
It does scratch like other reviews have said, but not as bad as I had anticipated. I almost didn't buy it because of all the reviews stating how bad it scratched but I'll tell you I am glad I did. I am going river riding in a few weeks and I'll update to let you know how it handled water other then lakes. Good Luck!
