The MorningStar is a bit quicker which might be a help when you find yourself going against the tidal current. However if you intend to solo backwards from the bow seat..the less bow rocker in this case might cause some handling difficulties. Plus the Yellowstone has quite a few thwarts to contend with.
Load is not a factor.Both have similar capacities.
I ask where else you plan to paddle as either boat is fine for the Everglades but if you plan to do some twisty creeks that might be a factor.
Be mindful. ABS doesn't mix well with oyster bars. They can slice feet and boats.
I will be on the lookout for a Bell something when I go to the Everglades in a couple of weeks.
