I've had a rolyex Aurora for about 2 years. I've had a fair amount of experience with tandum canoes and like the Aurora quite well. Some have found it twitchy and not initally stable, but that has not been my experience. Relative to flatter bottomed boats it may well seem less stable at first to some. I have paddled it solo quite a bit in the Canadian style and it handles that well, even in a wind. I've had it out in 20-30 mph winds and had no trouble keeping it under control and making headway. The front seat leg room is a little tight and this could be a drawback for longer trips, fishing, etc.
I haven't tripped in it yet, but it seems to handle a load well and is a good do it all design, if you are looking for that type of boat.
