I like the Advantage a lot. The Advantage is a joy to paddle for exercise and rewards your efforts making you want to go faster. It was originally a downriver racer, so it has a fair amount of free board with a "normal" load.
Some folks find the Advantage a tad difficult to handle in the wind. It is definitely a go straight, sit and switch type of boat, not the most maneuverable, but then neither is the Prism.
The Advantage obviously has much less carrying capacity which does not sound like an issue for you. It is hard to say how stable or not you would find the Advantage relative to the Prism. I would suggest you try to find a way to test paddle one first.
