I'm a tall 6'1" and 190 lbs and am very comfortable in this yak. I've had this boat for for 2 years and think the world of it. I use it mostly on rivers, large creeks and lakes. It's not as stable as some other boats I've paddled but haven't tipped over either. It tracks straight, but turning is still pretty easy (if you're having a hard time it's your technique) It's light weight at only 50 lbs. I've paddled an Old Town Dirigo, Perception Prodigy, Wilderness System Tarpon and by far like the Carolina the best.
I did much research before buying this boat and I'm thrilled with my decision. My only disappointment is with accessing the dry hatches while on the water, not so easy, but this was fixed by adding a deck dry bag and have no other complaints.
