I have used this canoe on both small lakes and the James river (up to class II rapids). This was my first canoe so I have no frame of reference but other more experienced passengers commented on the stability and the acceleration. I think it is a great canoe and would highly recommend it. I agree with other reviewers, this is not a light canoe, difficult to load without two people.
