The Chilco does feel twitchy on fairly flat water due to the hard chines. I recommend paddling it quite a bit - you'll soon realize that twitchiness is unrelated to its' stability, which is quite solid. Relax and you'll get used to it.

The gas pedal style rudder controls are far superior to the sliding pedals. Again, probably you need a bit of time to get used to it.

I paddled the Chilco for a few years, and I'm sure you'll love it once you get more time in it.

Like any kayak, it helps to custom fit it with foam.
