keep at it for a while. A challenging boat will teach you faster than a bath-tun like recreational one, provided you are willing and able to put some time, thought, and practice into it. But try to "experiment" with at least someone able to rescue you at first - you just don't know what you don't know as a beginner...
I got the plastic version and, while it might offer a beginner a swim or two initially, I don't feel it is unreasonably unstable to learn it, though I think a more user-friendly boat like a Wilderness Zephyr 155 or P&H Delphin or Cetus would make things easier and less "traumatic" when just getting started -:)
So, how did it go? Did you try it out yesterday?
