The Scanoe is by far the safest canoe I have ever been in. I use a 3.3 hp mercury outboard and when I am alone a good counter weight is required to keep the bow in the water. When paddling alone, as with most canoes, if you don't want to kneel on the bottom I sit in the front seat and paddle it backwards, it looks a little funny with the motor on, but paddles a lot better. As for ride, the more weight the better, it sits lower and becomes more stable. Definitely get an extension for the tiller, anymore than a short jaunt causes much discomfort.
