If you paddle mostly flatwater there are a myriad of better suited canoes, in my opinion. It is not very efficient design (needs sharper entry at the bow)and a stiffer hull (mine was in R-lite and the bottom was not rigid enough to hold it's shallow arch shape on the water -- in fact it was flat or even concave; it would probably be better in royalex for sure due to the increased rigidity of the heavier material). From a stability standpoint it was fine. The bow is more rockered than the stern and the canoe bow turns nicely and is fun in light rapids. It will carry a load but as the blunt bow comes down into the water with added weight it pushes a lot of water and you lose the little effiency you had unloaded. I actually enjoyed mine more solo paddling.
