Launched in flat water pond behind my house and conducted Fishing Stability Sea Trial as promised in an earlier post.
Although I was able to stand up and balance myself in the middle of the dinghy with legs spread wide apart and a foot wedged against each chine, it was not stable enough for relaxed casting. Conclusion: Stand-up casting potential - forgetaboutit.
Like Green said earlier, exercise CAUTION when boarding. Step in the center, with hands supporting and balancing your body, and sit down as quickly as possible.
Once seated, the dinghy is fairly stable and comfortable. It rowed effortlessly, quick to respond, even against a light headwind.
