Once on the lake seems quite stable and can move relatively quickly. Haven’t had it out in waves yet, but think it will do OK.
Built a detachable yoke because it’s difficult to portage if you’re carrying a pack, paddle, and fishing rod over rough terrain, even though it only weighs 18 lbs. This should come with the canoe. Never-the-less, it was easy to build and works well.
It’s much better than a kayak for fishing with lots of room in front and behind.
