That's a good point. I'll have to try it with the Tempest when I can. I'm not going to willingly dump in the cold water (at least not until I have a dry suit), so it'll have to wait til warmer weather, or if I somehow manage to get it into a pool.
Now, that being said, if I do happen to go over on my own, I now will probably try the cowboy at least once just to get the heck out of the cold water quickly. :)
The boats we used there in the pool seemed very tippy. VERY easy to capsize, and very easy to tip 'em over when climbing back in. I don't recall my two boats have much better initial stability.
BTW, I wrote a blog post about both of my classes... they're up here: http://robgadv.wordpress.com with more detail than I posted here. Even some photos.
