It is great that you are happy with your new boat.
The idea that it is "safe and stable" is not quite accurate. A vee shaped hull is much safer.

In my location and the water I fish safety and stability are one in the same. I use this in creeks, rivers, and small lakes where I am never more than 100 yards from the shore. If the waves are so big I need to cut through them I likely wouldn’t have gone out and if I did and got caught in it I would beach the boat and wait it out before trying to battle them. I needed stability and a shallow drafting boat which could slide over obstructions in skinny water and this boat does both excellent.

You are using your boat in the way it was designed for. I like your answer. I wish more people would chose a boat that is appropriate for its use.

I have a friend that wanted to buy a pontoon boat for Lake Tahoe. Not good.
