Most of the time I have "the moose" with me for weight up front and so long as he doesn't see something in the water that he wants, we are fine. He would rather be swimming anyway...
I like the dog!

"A little tippy". I like that. I'm 200 pounds, mine is like stepping from an angle onto a feather resting on lube grease. Other than that it's reasonably stable.

I do like how fast it rows. That's pretty cool. But my 80 pound exuberant wobbler makes the ride a little erratic. He can't always decide to stay with the boat or jump off and hunt...
