We've got an 8' Walker Bay RID with a hypalon tube. It feels very stable with two adults and minimal gear
, in the flat waters of the San Juan Islands
. If it gets choppy you may get wet, slow down, and feel less stable. It zooms right along with a 2hp Yamaha 2-stroke, (22#), with 2 large adults, in flat water
. With 1 adult, (250#), it is stable and quick enough. No GPS
speeds though. I think a 10' would be better, but everything is heavier.
