  Good.

Sure. The ends are stuffed with styrofoam so that they don't fill with water. That helps to keep it on top even when swamped and filled. Also, I think some of those are made from a three layer plastic that has a plastic foam between crunchy candy coatings, which helps keep it floating.

If you get into rougher water, there are even big bags you can fill with air to strap in the fore and aft of the boat so that the air bags don't permit water to fill in that space. They're called "flotation bags" and you can get them from NRS (www.nrsweb.com).

Glad you have a good time despite a flip. Flips can be fun when you're ready for them.
