Here is the bad girl going into Hermit. Pulled an oarlock about halfway through, but it didn't seem to matter much. Big wet ride--the water was pouring out over the gunwales at the end.

Yes, quite tippy, but with a few hundred pounds of ballast down low--food, garbage, beer, library,--held down with lighter duffel--she was incredibly stable. There have been several dory flips in the Canyon with unballasted boats running under the belief that lighter is better. Running a light rig is nice, but there is such a thing as too light.
