  Have you tried an on-water self-rescue?

And have you tried loading the boat up at least half full of water to emulate the effect of waves dumping into that very large cockpit?

The reality is that the hull design is not appropriate for big water - the barges are actually more unstable in waves than skinnier sea kayaks. But if you had ever tried an on-water self-rescue on a nice cool day in waves with a big cockpit/no bulkhead/no perimeter line rec boat... you wouldn't need to ask this question.
