I had tested a Wilderness Systems Cape Lookout 155 for 3 weeks. Felt all along that the boat was unstable (tipped twice), but contributed it to the lack of skills on my part. Finally, I decided to trade up to Old Town's Adventure XL 160. Great move. The Old Town is a dream, very stable even on a choppy lake with tons of motor boats. Very easy to get in and out, and while just a tad slower than the Cape Lookout 155, it's worth the compromise. I'm 6'3" and 240 lbs. I recommend this boat to anyone, especially large size beginners to have a good time, even under adverse conditions.
