I have had my MNII for about six years now, and I can definitely say that it was the best money I have ever spent on outdoor equipment. I have the Ultra-light Kev core, it is a dream to portage in the BWCA. It easily holds 4 duluth packs, and will still go faster than anything else on the water. The stability is excellent, but it definitely feels more stable with weight in it. It tracks very well for such a long boat, but you need to pay attention to weight distribution when it gets windy. If you are interested in purchasing a canoe for the BWCA, this is the only one that you should consider.
