I think a boat w half the stability of a Livingston is stable but yes the "L" has plenty of stability. And the "L" wouldn't gain much stability from the mod I suggested but the capacity would go way up and end the complaints of low freeboard. I'm quite sure it would plane better w less power or more weight.
Hey Eric; the 10' Livingston has solved the low freeboard issue vs the 9' model. An additional 10" does wonders.

And our 9' Livingston is perfectly suited for its current role, which is plying the lakes and ponds of Kananaskis Country in Alberta's foothills.
