I take this thing out on our local reservoir & up calm rivers once a week. It's not quite as stable as it should be due to high seats, BUT it is stable enough for lakes & slow rivers with experienced paddlers. I have found putting more weight (such as a cooler) in the bottom when I have a new-to-canoeing passengfer up front, helps them feel more secure. I actually like the slight instability because it forces me to work my stabilizing core muscles more, which I feel after a long ride. Don't be afraid of this boat, but do try before you buy to make sure it works for you. IT is practically indestructable and has VERY CSUPPORTIVE COMFORTABLE SEATS
