The company exhibits at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend every year. They have races in the evening with a lot of boats sailing in and around the anchored vessels where we always are. I had admired the rowing capabilities and thought the videos were pretty cool, but two years ago I saw a PT Watercraft with the sailing rig and they were flying around the anchored boats in around 20 knots of wind with two people. It looked really stable to me.
The nesting feature might be helpful to you and the way they attach is solid and easy to manage in the water. The kits seem pretty foolproof and a fun project. The only improvement I would make is to use white Rhino liner on the inside bottom to keep the dogs from scratching it, and probably a bit on the exterior bottom as well so I wouldn't have to worry about dragging it up onto PNW rocky beaches.
