  Tons Of Secondary Stability
  Posted by: wildernesswebb on Nov-01-12 11:58 PM (EST)
 

Will end with a story of the Courier's stability. My wife and I were paddling with a friend in northern MN last year and were racing a storm. Had a nice tailwind and I was moving pretty good. All at once, I hit a boulder HARD enough that it stopped me dead. I lurched forward, hit my arm hard on the thwart, my friend said "Whiplash!" As I rolled to the right, the gunnel dipped to the water and then cradled me back to center. Most boats would have dumped me out. I think you'll find it a very "Safe" boat.
