Apparently the guy who thought the canoe was tippy wasn't a real canoeist. The Osage 17' I own has side sponsons and it never tips! Doesn't weigh as much as my father's old Grumman. Dad has had a time with his keel leaking. I told him mine won't leak because it is all welded not taped like Grummans are. Haven't had any trouble with the pitting issue. Oxidation is a normal quality of aluminum. Just like rust on steel! You have to use a little bit of preventative measures to stop it. A little car wax and there is no problem, plus it slides over rocks and logs easier than a fiberglass canoe! Love the capacity of this canoe, Osage is all I will ever buy!
