I recommend Indian River canoes...to me you are correct in getting a wider canoe,mine is 14ft long and 46 inches across with a flat back stearn, I slide it in the bed of my truck effortlessly...I guide from my canoe yr round with a customer sitting up front on a raised seat but most of the time they stand while I also stand and pushpole...I cover about 6-8 miles a day this way...that answers the stablilty question...one of my customers is 70yrs old and he stands up for 8hrs a day in it while I am moving...it is a tunnel hull and I have never had a single issue with it, it does NOT track any different than a keel canoe and it cost under $500...I have guided in it for yrs on the flats of Biscayne Bay as well as the Everglades...never tipped yet and never any issues...also I carry 3 flyrods dry and line stripped out ready to cast...thats basically a unbeatable situation IMO...good luck with your choice
