  Sleep? No, but...

...I always found that the Nordkapp and Pintail paddle the best when you're loose and relaxed, allowing the boat to move around under you and do it's thing. Both boats seem to have a sense for the water and left to their own devices, they'll keep you upright.

That said, as I've mentioned above, this is very dependent on the seat height in the Nordkapp. With a high seat and no load, it's not a boat you can easily relax in. With the seat lowered, it's as stable and comfortable as a couch. I still remember how much of a revelation is was after I lowered the seat in my Nordkapp a full inch; it absolutely transformed the boat. I went from being nervous in it to being completely comfortable literally overnight, simply due to that one change.
