I found the Dolphin slightly unstable for its' extreme width. Necky apparently choose to give this wash decked boat a high seating platform that would give the paddler a dry place to sit rather than put the seat down low for more stability (but a wet seat.) I understand their reasons for doing it this way, it's just that I'd have preferred it the other way.
In all other respects, I thought the boat was excellent, particularly the quality of attatchements and finish. I'll stick with my Scupper until I can find a wash decked kayak that is faster, has room for camping gear and is at least as stable.
