This is the first canoe I've been in, much less owned. Like most, I looked through these reviews quite a bit and then made my purchase. I'm very happy with my choice. I've taken it out twice now. First time was a 4 hour trip down a slow river, and the second time was fishing in the sound where it handled boat chop pretty well (from the front and side). The only reason for the mark down is for the seat. I didn't get complaints about the front seat, but the back seat put some soreness in the backside after a couple of hours (not too bad though). Other than that, it's great. You do feel the low initial stability, but you get the confidence in its final stability and it's not a problem. Definitely recommend it.
